AUTHENTICITY: Most of the items we sell are AUTHENTIC Native American made. We purchase new items directly from the artist or from a recognized and reputable dealer who deals directly with the artist. New items come with an Authenticity Card stating the artist's name & tribal affiliation. The pawn items are purchased by us, in person, from reputable Southwestern pawn shops with whom we have dealt for many years. Most of the vintage pieces are obtained from private collectors or from well-respected Western and Native American Art auction houses in New Mexico. Our family has dealt in Native American and other antiquities for over 95 years, and we have specialized in Indian Jewelry for the last 30 years. We are in full compliance with the US Dept. of the Interior American Indian Arts & Crafts Act of 1990. We have been a member of the Indian Arts and Crafts Association (IACA) since 2008. Although the Indian Arts and Crafts Association (IACA) dissolved in 2018, as a former IACA member, we promise to promote, preserve and protect authentic American Indian arts and crafts. This insures the authenticity of the jewelry we sell and protects your investment. If we can not determine with certainty that an unsigned vintage jewelry item was made by a Native American artist, we list it in the Vintage Southwestern Jewelrycategory. We sell a limited number of Mexican jewelry pieces and jewelry made by non-Native artists and this jewelry is sold in the Non-Indian Made Jewelrycategory on our website. For more information, see our Authenticity Page
TURQUOISE: Native American silversmiths use both natural and stabilized turquoise in their jewelry. About 95% of all turquoise on the market today is stabilized. While natural turquoise is often the most desirable, keep in mind that simply because turquoise is stabilized, it does not mean it is of lower quality. In fact, stabilization helps to maintain the color of the turquoise and to harden the stone, making it less prone to chips and cracks. Stabilizing treatments also make the turquoise easier for artisans to work with it. On our website, if the turquoise is natural, the product description will state that the turquoise is natural.

SHIPPING: Currently, we ship only to addresses within the United States, except for the state of Kansas. Effective October 1, 2019, we can no longer sell or ship jewelry to customers residing in the state of Kansas due to Kansas's extremely complicated remote seller sales tax laws. In order to ship to Kansas, we would be required to collect and remit city, state and local sales tax on all items and there are more than 900 different sales tax jurisdictions in Kansas. ALL other states in the U.S. have a small seller exemption for small sellers like us. Hopefully Kansas lawmakers will remedy this situation soon. We apologize for this inconvenience..
SALES TAX: Sales tax of 7.75% will be charged on shipments to New Mexico addresses. Sales tax for Kansas residents will be charged based upon the shipping address.
FREE USPS FIRST CLASS MAIL SHIPPING TO U.S. ADDRESSES! We charge a fee for Priority Mail or Express Mail shipping. See our shipping page.
