Hi there, I have this Necklace it’s been hanging on my jewellery stand I decided to look into it and I hadn’t a clue about fetish Necklaces could this be fake or real? Really appreciate some help.
Thanks for sharing, I wouldn’t call this Zuni made.
Oh right thanks , I emailed a native American jewellery shop with photos asking for a opinion and they said it was Zuni.
Yeah, we see lots of Zuni fetish necklaces and buy directly from a handful of Zuni artists who make these pieces. I respect their opinion, it is always a difficult call from an image. Do you mind me asking where this shop is located?
You now know where not to shop.
Hey, it’s www.wildeones.com it’s a shop that is on the kings road, Chelsea, london established 1987.
I just wanted some help not for people to be rude about it.

That link is informative: evidently they sell authentic items and also misattributed/question mark things.
I know the shop wildeones in London they buy direct from the artists. They have been in operation for over 25 years… so if you bought this from them its a genuine item. I have never ever seen them sell copies. Normally they know the artists that carved them.
@Amber1 Cannot agree as a blanket approval. Naturally, we’re all free to use our judgment and experience and spend accordingly.
Only one example: Zuni handcrafted?
I have to agree with you about that ring. I have not been to london since 2017 .but they used to only sell genuine items but i notice they have moved into other goods too. So maybe not as good as they used to be how sad.They ride on a name that was known for genuine items .best place to go the states and the native indian craft market in Scottsdale normally around March.
