History of Native American Necklaces
Many of our pieces tell a story and we invite you to learn more about
the beliefs, values, and history that go into making our turquoise necklaces. The Native American necklaces featured here are inspired by centuries of history and belief. You will find turquoise necklaces with stunning Native American symbolism and patterns etched into the silver or formed from the stone pattern, giving you a beautiful piece that’s more like a work of art.
The Native Americans first began making the necklaces we’re familiar with today, turquoise and sterling silver, in the late 19th century when the Spanish first traveled here for trade. Teaching various tribes the art of silverwork, they quickly took to the skill and began making pieces of their own with intricate designs featuring the patterns, symbols, and stories of their own cultures. Many of the traditions and techniques in silverwork have been passed down from one generation to the next, meaning that when you purchase a piece from SJD, you’re buying a piece of history.
Native American necklaces are a symbol of style, wealth, class, and elegance. At Southwest jewelry Designs, we are proud to partner with the finest Navajo, Hopi, and Zuni artists in the Southwest region. Our family-owned business has made personal connections with these artists and their communities, giving you access to some of the most beautiful turquoise necklaces available and we are always on the lookout for new talents within these communities.
