Zuni and Navajo Jewelry (Vintage)

For some, vintage (pre-1970s) Zuni and Navajo jewelry is nonpareil. Although somewhat crudely made (all natural stones with color variations and less precise stone cuts and fittings, or irregular bezels) there is nonetheless an elegance and charm of times past.  Heirloom Native American jewelry (difficult to find) has a timeless quality. The demand for quality old Native American jewelry continues to be a quest for many collectors.   There is also a resurgence in native jewelry from the 70s – a period of large showy necklaces, bracelets and belts.
