Throughout our Indian lands the trading posts serve also as pawn shops with the trader usually involved in an earthy form of banking business – part of the process known as pawning…… Most Hopi, Zuni and Navajo reservation Indians (The BIG Three) and many other Traders converted their turquoise and silver jewelry into cash……. At times the trading post vault is the safest place in which to keep valuables…….. In this case the Native American pawns their items for a minimum loan of cash and is happy to pay the interest rate in return for the security of his goods…… Origin of the items we sell……. Just a little about our experience in this field of Native American Jewelry. We have lived and worked in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Utah and Colorado, I used to work in the turquoise and copper mines in Arizona for 12 years Tunneling in Texas 10 years, Mining in Colorado 15 years and have been around turquoise jewelry over 45 years, so it is not something new to me or my wife, although we don’t know it all, we do have a great understanding about it and collecting it, and have an extensive Rare Library of the old collectors books and unpublished magazines and manuscripts on the subject which helps us learn and understand more each day.
