The wide appeal of Native American bracelets, necklaces and rings is derived from their symbolic nature.

Native American jewelry and rings have been a large part of Southwestern culture for decades. The Native American ring has become a popular trade item not only among travelers and artisans, but also movie stars and celebrities all over the world.
Now, a new website dedicated to the beauty and history of Native American rings has been launched.
“The wide appeal of Native American bracelets, necklaces and rings is derived from their symbolic nature,” said NativeAmericanRings.net spokesperson Jamie Seaver. “Native American jewelry symbolizes life, and normally uses feathers to imbue each piece with honor. Bear paws may be included to symbolize leadership, while the buffalo represents a Greater Spirit protector. Native American handmade rings feature many of these symbols upon their bands.”
The new website takes a look back at the incredible history of Native American rings, as well as the current popularity of the precious items.
Many modern Native American rings combine symbolism from different stones. As Native American jewelry is designed, it’s normal to match stone’s symbolic representations to various cultural insignias. For example, the tiger’s eye—found upon a common Native American silver ring—features a rendition of the eagle, and represents both courage and protection. The eagle also represents bravery, and supposedly provides peace to the ring-wearer.
“Today’s modern culture places heavy value upon the various symbols of strength recognized by Native American jewelry,” said Seaver. “Native American rings often augment various cultural beliefs and virtues, and deliver inner peace to their wearers. Rings are worn for both cultural and aesthetic reasons, and are still associated with Native American spirituality.”
