Collection of Unique Native American Sterling Silver Turquoise Jewelry & Belt Buckles

Share |

Native-American-Sterling-Turquoise-Buckle-1Assorted collection of early and mid-20th C. Native American Sterling Silver Turquoise Belt Buckles, Squash Blossoms, Bracelets, Rings and Belts. Many of the Native American Sterling Silver pieces are signed and possess rare, hard to find, beautiful Turquoise. A majority of the Native American Sterling collection being sold was recently on loan to a New York museum for a year-long Native American History show. The collection is comprised of approximately 60 pieces in total.

Native Americans began making Sterling Silver jewelry in the mid-19th C. using primarily silver coins traded with English, French and American Trappers. The process began with a handful of Native American learning the art of metal working from Mexican silversmiths. Some of these pieces were considered family treasures to be passed through the generations, while others were made to be sold or traded. As years passed, all types of Native American Sterling Silver jewelry pieces found their way in to the marketplace. A great number of people collect and seek out better pieces and makers today to add to their collections or wear.

Native American Sterling Silver jewelry is handmade and typically exudes great quality, attention to detail and Native-American-Sterling-Red-Coral-Turquoise-Bucklecraftsmanship. The fact the pieces are handmade, provides for each to have a uniqueness and beauty which cannot be exactly duplicated. Pieces are often signed by the maker and in many instances the makers themselves can become quite famous, thus creating tremendous demand and value for their pieces.

Aside from the Native American Sterling Silver jewelry, the auction will also include: estate jewelry, diamonds, timepieces, coins, currency, crystal & glassware, jade, ivory, Chinese seals, original listed art, gem stones, military antiques, silver, scrimshaw, automaton bird boxes & birdcages, collectibles & furniture.
