Native American jewelry is usually made of silver and precious gemstones including turquoise, opal, mother of pearl, onyx and other gemstones. Most of the jewelry is handmade in the Southwest but can be crafted all around the United States.
The factors that affect the value of Native American Jewelry is based on certain criteria. These include:
- Artist’s reputation
