Native American Rings

Native Americans are known for the various, beautiful jewelry they wear including necklaces, bangles, belts, bracelets and rings. Turquoise is the most popular stone used in Native American rings and other jewelry. This stone could be used alone or in combination with other stones and silver. It is believed to bring luck to the wearer and this belief has existed for at least 2,000 years. Jewelry served as an essential item in trade and commerce in ancient times. Really good and authentic Native American rings can cost anything upwards of $90.

The blue turquoise is identified with the males and believed to represent the sky. The green turquoise, on the other hand, is associated with the earth and is believed to be female. Hence, Native American rings with this stone can be worn by both men and women. Corals are yet another common semi-precious stone used in Native American rings. Glass beads came to be introduced in Native American jewelry after the arrival of the Europeans. Numerous symbols can also be often found interwoven in the design of tribal jewelry. Native American rings also come with a variety of semi-precious stones such as onyx, tiger’s eye, aquamarine and the like.

While looking to buy any such jewelry make sure you are at the right source because there are a lot of imitations and fakes going around. A reliable dealer in authentic Native American handicrafts will be the right person to approach. There are many organizations working towards popularizing the craft and the products they offer usually come directly from the artisans and it is as good as getting it direct from the reservations. In this case, you will have the peace of mind knowing that you have the original product even if you have to pay a little more for it. It would definitely be worth it!
