Old Pawn Jewelry
Old Pawn Jewelry has a special story to tell. Much like the cultures we represent, vintage Indian jewelry carries a great legacy. Over the course of it’s lifetime: belts, bolo ties, rings and necklaces have been passed down from generation to generation. Not only are they believed to provide good health, it was a way to carry one’s wealth with them. Many Old Pawn pieces were inlayed with turquoise which made them highly valuable and a way to secure fortune in times of trouble. If financial support was needed, families would “pawn” their heirlooms for a specific period of time. If the debt couldn’t be repaid within the agreed upon timeframe it would be sold to the general public. When we have the privilege to offer Old Pawn Native American turquoise jewelry, it really is a treasure and you can be assured the story won’t end with you.
