Mexican Silver & Vintage Silver Jewelry

We offer a broad spectrum of collectible silver jewelry. Being based in Texas we always have a good supply of Taxco, Mexican silver jewelry, as well as Native American silver jewelry. The southwest style of jewelry remains very popular in our area and its popularity has increased all over the country. With the price of silver rising to record highs, its getting more valuable all the time. Considerable efforts are made to research each piece and describe it as best we can. These beautiful pieces are all vintage, and have not been polished. Many collectors want the original dark patina, so we leave that choice and duty up to you.
