Important Information…

My
photos are very detailed and I am clear in my descriptions of my items
and their materials. If you do not know what the different types of
silver and turquoise are, please read this before you buy.

Sterling silver: is .925 (almost) solid silver.

Nickel Silver: Also
known as German silver, has been used by silversmiths for the last 100
Years in jewelry making. It contains no actual silver but it takes the
same amount of work and craftsmanship as sterling. Nickel Silver will
not tarnish as easily as Sterling.

Genuine Turquoise: This is actual turquoise stone. Actual

untreated turquoise stone is very soft, Therefore very

difficult for artisan’s to work with. Genuine turquoise stone

jewelry pieces will always be priced extremely high for this

reason.

Stabilized Turquoise: Because
genuine turquoise stone is very soft, it is usually stabilized in one
way or another by wax, epoxy, resin, clear sealers etc, so it does not
scratch so easy. This is often done at the original mine. Most nugget
and heishi products now available in North America are made from real
turquoise that has been stabilized.

Block turquoise and other block sets: Called ‘block’

because it is sold in large blocks. It is laboratory created.

Block is being manufactured in many different countries i

including the USA. It is sold to Native American’s by local

jewelry supply companies. It’s comprised of many

different materials including plastics, epoxy resins and

MANY other materials. It has been used in the southwest

for over 50 years. It actually requires more labor than natural stone because of its hard consistency therefore it is harder to carve than stone.

Reconstituted Turquoise: Consists of small pieces of stone

and turquoise chalk powder mixed with dye and plastic

binder. This type of turquoise is sometimes often referred

to as “Block”. Fake Turquoise is also often labeled

“Reconstituted.” Sometimes it is almost impossible to tell.
