Jewelry enthusiasts around the world have been collecting modern, traditional and contemporary Zuni Indian jewelry pieces from the Zuni people for many years. The Zuni Indians also have a history of pottery making as well.
Now, the new ZuniIndianJewelry.com offers consumers a unique glance into the history of the Zuni Indian tribe.
“Zuni's came along way from their earlier years of jewelry making that consisted of single pieces of leather with feathers and beads attached to them,” says spokesperson Sara Trout. “The Zuni Indian jewelry is now made of silver with inlays of things like turquoise and red coral stones. These pieces stand out for their traditional and sacred symbols of carved leaves and animals.”
The new site explores three categories of Zuni jewelry: Petit point, needle point and inlay. The petit point consists of very small oval, pear, round, rectangular or square cuts of stones. The needle point Zuni jewelry has needled shaped points. The inlay jewelry is gems that have been placed in with the silver.
“Zuni jewelry is very marketable because of its handcrafted craftsmanship. It consists of necklaces, rings, bracelets and earrings,” says Trout. “Their fine qualities such as vintage age, thickness, certification and cultural details keep the interest of jewelry collectors around the globe. These pieces are inexpensive and treasurable.”
True Zuni jewelry has the craftsman’s unique stamp on the piece and can be authenticated through a reputable jeweler. This authentication lets the buyer know that the Zuni jewelry will last for many years and its value will not falter.
“Each piece of Zuni jewelry comes blessed by the Zuni elder tribe members,” says Trout, “and can be traceable through the origin of the Zuni people.”
