Navajo Sterling Silver and 14 Karat
Gold Inlay Jewelry
For over a century
Navajo silversmiths have been making jewelry for themselves and
for sale. They have perfected the art of silversmithing and taken
their craft to new levels of achievement. They have added lapidary
skills and adorn their silver (and now also gold) with beautiful
stones of turquoise, coral, jade, tiger's eye, jasper, lapis,
varisite, sugilite and rodonite. Their skill with inlay is remarkable.
In New Mexico a group
of Navajo silversmiths, known as Supersmiths, are working together
to produce some of the finest sterling silver and 14 karat gold
inlay necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings and pendants. They
cast the silver or gold and then do the delicate inlay work by
hand. This jewelry comes in several stone combinations which are
displayed on the linked pages. These inlay pieces are available
in standard flat inlay as well as raised cobbled inlay. Special
pieces are also available with Australian Opal or Turquoise from
the Carico Lake Mine in Nevada.
Following are examples
of the various styles available. Some are in stock for immediate
shipment, and all are available on order. We can provide any style
shown in any of the stone combinations. All items are available
in sterling silver, and many are available in 14 karat gold. Each
piece is unique. When you order a ring in any of the stone combinations,
the stones used will be those described for that color combination,
but the layout of the stones will always vary from piece to piece.
Allow 5 to 6 weeks for delivery on items not in stock. There is
a $10.00 charge for shipping and insurance. For cobbled inlay
there is a 20% surcharge.
