Approximations of Value / Appraisals

Most importantly, we  (love) turquoise jewelry!  

As a matter of fact, we can determine an approximation of value of your Native American Indian Jewelry:

  • Equally important, we sell thousands of dollars of turquoise jewelry each week!
  • In like manner, we personally cut turquoise from the rough stone, shape turquoise for jewelry, and silversmith the finished product.
  • Also, we have mined turquoise with Dean Otteson, owner of Royston district turquoise mines.
  • Finally, we have hunted turquoise in Bisbee at the No. 7 tailing area at the invitation of Freeport McMoRan Mining Firm.

Furthermore, a verbal approximation of value of your Native Southwest jewelry costs you only $39.95 per item.
