Part of my jewelry drawer collection, really have no clue about the markings. With turquoise jewelry I like the gold and white inclusions in the stones and unpolished raw stones. Have not seen any at garage sales lately; some plastic ones but none with real stones. Any clue as to markings?

    Listed these on the internet and got people saying silver plated chinese copies and I need to lower my prices on poor quality stuff. So, I ended the listings and put them back in the drawer. Last thing I need is neg feedback?

    WOW!!!!

    I thought they were nice too; but was getting several comments on ebat that they were plated junk copies. One buyer insisted the Navaho mark was a Chinese mark for fake. They're not plastic stones??
  9. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 2 years ago
    They are real and beauties...they are worth a small fortune! Ebay does not know anything...and always get a professional opinion...these are RARE and stunning! I used to collect Navajo and Zuni pieces...

    Sorry for any hurt feelings ....But anyone who said that you had junk was trying to trick you.
  11. valentino97 valentino97, 2 years ago
    Yes, I agree w/Moonstone - I have a lot of Native American jewelry - these are the real deal.
  12. NativeJewelerylovers NativeJewelerylovers, 2 years ago
    I agree with Moonstone...these all appear Navajo to me. I wasn't able to locate the mark. They all appear silver but testing would be the best way to determine if real silver.
  13. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 2 years ago
    Native, thank you for agreeing with me. I believe that the silver is going to be coin silver and that those rings are going to b Harvey era. And those are some of the nicest one I have seen! I think they r made around 1930's.
  14. NativeJewelerylovers NativeJewelerylovers, 2 years ago
    I can pretty much tell by the way they are tarnishing that they are coin or better but testing is the best method to be sure. I love the bracelet, trying to make out the mark at the top of the piece. They are very nice pieces. As far as time period you are probably better at that than I... What is the last stone in the bracelet? maybe amber?
  15. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 2 years ago
    Native, The last stone in the bracelet is a Fire Opal Agate from Mexico. If that helps :))

    Thanks...really a cool stone...
