What we noticed is there aren’t many major retailers that have the pieces worn by Cher, Kim, and many others over the years. That’s why we wanted to jump into the new market of trendsetters who are looking to modernize the style; I think we did a pretty good job with our latest collection.”

In a recent article put out by Vogue, they capture the simple beauty of the American Southwest in one stunning collection of fashion pieces, especially their accessories. The heart of the Southwest has always been the precious stones and expert silversmith techniques found across the Four Corners, according to one local store promoter. In his opinion, Vogue brilliantly captures the piquant and sumptuous moments in one, neat article, showcasing the various turquoise mines of the Southwest region. Even major stars like Kim Kardashian have been known to rock the blue stone from time to time.

The only thing that seems to be missing is a definitive place for the public to get their hands on genuine turquoise jewelry, that’s where a local Arizona business comes into the picture.

SilverTribe, a company that has been turning the Southwest fashion industry on its head, is proud to sport stones from all of the mines mentioned in Vogue’s article. The spokesman of SilverTribe, Chris Anderson, said, “I think it’s truly incredible to see how these styles are resonating with younger audiences that want to emulate the idols of their parent’s youth; in a way we are preserving the history of Native American art and Southwest fashion at the same time. What we noticed is there aren’t many major retailers that have the pieces worn by Cher, Kim, and many others over the years. That’s why we wanted to jump into the new market of trendsetters who are looking to modernize the style; I think we did a pretty good job with our latest collection.”

SilverTribe.com is bringing back the popular styles of the 70’s back into the modern era with new cuts and designs that suit the next generation. The company’s latest collection brings together turquoise stones from some of the most famous mines in their hometown of Arizona. Among the many types of turquoise available in this new release, people can expect to find:

Kingman Turquoise

Kingman turquoise is the product of the Kingman mine in Arizona. The turquoise in this mine was initially discovered by the Navajo tribes. In the 1970, the mine was closed but opened back up in 2004. Kingman turquoise can be easily spotted by its green hue and light-brown matrix.

Sleeping Beauty Turquoise

The sleeping beauty mine rests in the heart of Arizona’s Gila County, is a strikingly deep blue stone with a jet-black matrix. The mine recently closed so SilverTribe is one of the few stores left with a surplus of this incredibly gorgeous stone.

Another of Nevada’s treasures is the Dry Creek mine with its milky turquoise, turned almost white by the aluminum, rather than copper, found in the area.

Bird's Eye Turquoise

This mine is located in Northwestern Arizona and is distinguished by its light blue color and its darker blue turquoise matrix; it’s a simply gorgeous stone that seems to glow in a spider web pattern of light blues and whites.

Number 8 Turquoise

The Number 8 Turquoise mine is in the Lynn mining district in Eureka County, Nevada. Though the mine was recently closed; there is still quite a bit of #8 Turquoise available in SilverTribe’s collection. The best, natural spider web material from the #8 Turquoise mine is rare and highly coveted by collectors.

Silvertribe is combining past and present styles to arrive at the future of fashion. As the decades have shown, turquoise is a stone that always comes back and will never go out of style. Anderson welcomes all trendsetters to the site and hopes they will fall in love with the new collection.
