in existence. The design, variety and artistry that goes into every
piece have made us the premiere online destination for all your
jewelry needs. Our inventory reflects the methods and history that
helped make these stunning works of art so popular.
It is believed American Indians were taught the art of working
silver in the 19th century. They quickly made the process their own
with distinctive characteristics of Southwest jewelry that inspired
today's popular styles. Their use of overlay, stones and symbols
made Southwest jewelry a highly sought after commodity.
That tradition continues today and our customers are continually
amazed by our huge selection of Southwest jewelry and art. Our
collection includes beautiful Southwest Indian jewelry inspired by
those early pieces.
Many people believe the most popular styles were developed in the
early 1900s when Southwest Indian jewelry designers began making
silver items for themselves and for trading with other tribes. The
beauty of those pieces soon attracted outsiders and artists began
trading Southwest Indian jewelry commercially.
Since that time, the craft has evolved into what it is today, a
thriving business built on expert craftsmanship and a rich cultural
history. SilverTribe gets much of its inventory from some of the
most skilled makers of Southwest jewelry on the planet.

movement that continues today. Modern Southwest jewelry designers
keep that spirit alive through their work.
