Back in the 60s and 70s my parents collected and loved Native Turquoise. I now have it and I’m curious about the stamped initials and anything else interesting about it. I think it’s Navaho but I’m not sure. I wonder if it’s as special as my parent were. Can anyone help me to identify it?
Post some pictures here and we’ll do our best to help you.
Thanks for sharing. Some of this doesn’t fit that time frame. The squash blossom is Zuni made and is 1970s - 80s. It is very nice and the hallmark belongs to Sibert and Janita Kallestewa. The ring is Navajo made and is likely a mountain lion claw. The turquoise is nice with that webbing. I would also call this circa 1970s. The bottom ring is also a Navajo piece. I am not sure if that is a piece of turquoise. This could be the oldest piece of the bunch. I don’t believe the first necklace is Native made. Thanks for sharing.
Now I get to thinking about it your so right. I was born in the mid fifties and I remember them buying turquoise. So it was more around the last sixties or seventies. I’ll change that on my post. Thank you so much. Have any idea what it’s worth. I may sell it.
