The jewelry making and wearing tradition among Native Americans is as
ancient as the tribes themselves. In the past, silver, coral, shell and
turquoise were the materials of choice. These were used in Native American
adornments that were worn primarily for ceremonies. Often, the jewelry
would be pawned for cash flow between ceremonies and paid out again when
it was time for another ceremony. This evolved into the use of other stones
such as lapis lazuli, opal, abalone, mother of pearl and amber and the
use of gold. Today, Native American jewelry is among the finest in the
world and is highly prized in Western and European society.
