Navajo jewelry is being highlighted this week at Silvertribe.com in honor of the tribe's contribution to Southwest jewelry and art.
"Many people don't know how large of a role the Navajo tribe had in developing the style of Southwestern jewelry we wear to this very day," said SilverTribe Spokesman Chris Anderson. "This jewelry is some of the most beautiful and well-constructed available on the market today."
SilverTribe carries a massive selection of Navajo jewelry, from squash blossom necklaces to bracelets and pendants. The tribe was the first in the Southwestern United States to begin working with sterling silver.
"While it's hard to imagine Native American jewelry that isn't made with sterling silver, the material wasn't actually introduced until the late 19th century," Anderson said. "The jewelry styles we see today are a direct result of the artistry and creativity of the Navajo tribe."
SilverTribe's collection includes striking pendants with large turquoise stones in bezel settings. Visitors will also discover a growing variety of Navajo bracelets, earrings and belt buckles to match any style or budget.
Turquoise jewelry is among the most popular examples of Navajo craftsmanship and SilverTribe carries a leading selection at prices well below the industry standard with free shipping to all U.S. addresses.
"We're encouraging new visitors to sign up for our email list and become preferred members," Anderson said. "Our members have access to exclusive discounts and great special offers to save even more off the already discounted price you'll find on our website."
In addition to its leading selection of Navajo jewelry, SilverTribe also offers a massive selection of Native American jewelry from other Southwestern tribes, notably the Hopi and Zuni. Each tribe is known for its distinctive style and artistry.
