Welcome

First of all, thank you for visiting Route 66 Indian Jewelry!

Most relevant, these items consist of thin silver and turquoise jewelry that was popular at the time and “looks Indian.” Most interesting, Native American Indians were not producing this style of jewelry at the time. In other words, this was a invention of non-Indian entrepreneurs.  Consequently, it isn’t until Fred Harvey demonstrates to the Indians what he thinks are the best designs for tourists traveling to the West via trains and automobiles.

  • crossed arrows
  • chaco dogs
  • thunderbirds
  • and other stamped designs including the “whirling log”

Route 66 Necklace

For instance, this is a fabulous 1930’s Route 66 style necklace pendant.  In addition, the distinctive silversmith techniques of this piece show natural age turquoise stone!

Especially relevant, Route 66 style silversmithing first starts in the Southwest in the early 20th century. As a result of the influx of tourists at this time, the demand for Native American Indian jewelry was higher than the supply. Therefore, hotel entrepreneurs like Fred Harvey opened gift shops within their hotels to carry “Indian Jewelry”.

Consequently, we offer a huge selection of Route 66 Indian Jewelry offerings through multiple dealers at our brick and mortar store of almost 30 years.
