Authentic American Indian Jewelry
If it is important to you to know that you are purchasing
genuine Hopi, Zuni, Santo Domingo Pueblo or Navajo jewelry, Double Dee Deals
provides the resources you need when shopping for true Indian jewelry. We are
able to provide verification through the proper representation of the tribe and
the artist's hallmark or signature - the key identifiers when shopping for real
Indian silver jewelry is usually stamped with a personalized
marking by the silversmith who created the piece. If you come across a jewelry
item that is not stamped with the artist's name or symbol, it is less likely to
be Native American made. Most sellers of real Indian jewelry will also provide
Certification of Authenticity for your jewelry purchase upon request. The items
we represent as Indian or Native American jewelry, unless represented otherwise,
are genuine Indian handmade products and should not be confused with jewelry
imitations or imported pieces.
Native American Jewelry History
American Indian artists have been incorporating silver,
copper, beads, shells, ivory, amber, turquoise and other stones into their
Southwestern jewelry deigns for years. The use of turquoise, coral, jet and
shells as personal adornments by Southwestern Indians dates from prehistoric
times and the use of silver is almost 100 years old. As part of their
livelihood, the American Indians continue to create stunning pieces using the
same techniques from long ago. Their jewelry making traditions stay strong,
incorporating, rather than being replaced by, new materials and advanced
techniques like glass beads and metalworking.
