(PRWEB) July 27, 2013 -- A new website about Native American gold jewelry gives jewelry collectors a unique look into the history and making of these expensive and coveted gold jewelry pieces. Native American gold jewelry defined the rich and elite members of the tribe. It was symbolic of wealth and family. Native American jewelry was one of the earliest forms of jewelry making.
"In earlier years only the rich and elite members of the Native American Indian tribes wore this gold jewelry and was passed down from mostly mothers to daughters throughout many generations", says NativeAmericanGoldJewelry.com spokesperson Julie Varner. “These pieces of jewelry were rare because of their precious gems like diamonds and turquoise, which made them a very expensive item. They were mostly used for special occasions like weddings, dances and festivities. The designs were significant because they portrayed the beliefs and the customs of the tribe’s people.”
The Native American jewelry consists of beautiful earrings, unique bracelets, stylish necklaces and many more jewelry pieces like pendants. Their skills are preserved by passing on their jewelry to their children. The unique cuts, shapes and designs are so durable that they cannot be sold cheap. Since each piece of gold jewelry demonstrated the beliefs and the customs of the Native American people, modern day jewelry makers have borrowed their ideas to create their own styles of gold jewelry.
"Modern day Native American jewelry has changed since the beginning of their early silversmithing days and has become more contemporary and appealing," says Varner. “They have become more attractive, less expensive and more fashionable for everybody's daily use. Men and women of all ages and financial status can wear these Native American gold jewelry pieces for fashion and to complement their looks.”
Gold and gems are still costly, however over the years these precious items have become more abundant than they once were, which makes it easier to find less costly items for jewelry collections.
