Authentic Native American Indian Jewelry
The collection of Native American Indian pins and pendants at Palms Trading Company represents the diversity of the tribes and Pueblos of the Southwest. Navajo, Hopi, Santo Domingo and Zuni artists display their Nation’s characteristic jewelry style, from hand-stamped silver and chunky turquoise stones to multi-gemstone inlays.
Palms Trading Company buys all pins and pendants directly from Native American Indian artists, so every piece is authentic. Jewelry artists use only sterling silver in their pieces, and most stonework uses genuine stones.

How You Can Tell It’s Authentic
There are benefits to buying Southwestern silver and gemstone jewelry from a reputable dealer like Palms Trading Company:
Price. Because we buy directly from the artist, Palms Trading Company eliminates a middleman markup, and we pass the savings on to our customers. Our jewelry is priced below many suggested retail prices.
Quality. We possess an unmatched expertise on Native American Indian art. We are highly selective about what we carry—only the finest handmade pieces.
You may find a piece of authentic Native American jewelry that strikes your fancy at another store, however, and there are some simple tests to help you determine if a piece of contemporary or antique Native American Indian jewelry is authentic or not.
First: price may be your guide. A higher price tag is not a guarantee that a Western-style belt buckle is handmade by a Native American silversmith or that a turquoise ring has a high-quality stone, for instance. However, Palms Trading Company offers fair prices; anything significantly lower may be a red-flag.
Second: a magnet will help you identify plated jewelry. Sterling silver and solid gemstones are not magnetic, but nickel, a common metal plated by a (semi) precious overlay is. If a piece is attracted to a magnet, it is not sterling silver Native American Indian jewelry. See our video Is your Jewelry true sterling silver or silver plated? for a demonstration.
