Each piece in our Classics Collection is an homage to a centuries old art form that was born right here in the Southwest. These incredibly versatile designs are ideally suited for dressing up or down any outfit. From couture to casual, squash blossom necklaces will define any number of unique styles and personal aesthetics. The use of coral, turquoise and mother of pearl has been in vogue since the first trade routes connected the Southwestern desert to the coast.
Every decade rediscovers the timelessness of turquoise. “It’s an iconic style that went back to the ’40s, and it’s still important and relevant today,” says American West Jewelry Designer Carolyn Pollack.
In her 1948 photo spread in Harper’s Bazaar, Millicent Rodgers, the Standard Oil heiress that took Taos by storm in the ’40s, made Navajo jewelry iconic and cool. A symbol of the Southwest and all of its adventure, possibility, and freedom, turquoise has never shied away from stealing the show. We bring all of these influences, history and style into each piece of handcrafted jewelry, 100% made in the USA.
We encourage our collectors to enhance their Southwest jewelry collection with something authentic and iconic, such as our take on Southwest turquoise jewelry, cuff bracelets, silver earrings and silver necklaces, and other silver Southwestern jewelry that will complete a signature look.
A piece of iconic sleeping beauty turquoise jewelry is a trendy addition to a day look. Something bold, like a handcrafted naja pendant or big, bold southwestern ring lets the world know you understand and appreciate American Southwest jewelry.

Gemstone dangle earrings, sterling silver gemstone pendants, and other southwestern necklaces are full of favored stones like red coral, blue lapis, white mother of pearl, orange spiny oyster, and green malachite. The possibilities are endless for every gal on your gift list. This artisanal jewelry makes excellent gifts for collectors who love to diversify their favorite looks.
