There’s a place in the Southwest where it is known you can find Authentic Turquoise Jewelry called The Four Corners, where the  four states of Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico come together at one point on the ground.   Seventy-five miles from this point is the Durango Silver Company, where four turquoise assets–jewelry, craftmanship, great deals, good service–come together for jewelry lovers traveling the Southwest.

14k Gold Bisbee Turquoise and Ruby Ring

The Durango Silver Company is a family business, owned and operated by the Hartmans. John and Estell, their son, Dillon, and his wife, Nattarika, are family members that create jewelry, cut stones and beads, and market the families jewelry. Recently Crystal Hartman has begun to make Turquoise Jewelry with the family as well. Durango Silver Company has been making Authentic Turquoise Jewelry since the 1970s.

The Hartmans operate on a fully integrated business model for their turquoise jewelry business. That’s to say, they own the mines, they do the digs, they polish the stones, they craft the turquoise into stunning jewelry, and retail it to you—lucky customer—in their silver and turquoise jewelry gallery.

The gallery is a treasure trove of turquoise jewelry, from traditional Navajo designs to Southwest style contemporary pieces by local artists.

You will find authentic Turquoise jewelry in every style including some very modern designs that have been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Glamour Magazine, and Ralph Lauren Magazine

 

The turquoise is authentic. Bisbee, Morenci, Fox, Blue Gem, Number Eight, Royston, Royston Ribbon, and Spiderweb are among the high quality turquoise specimens from which the turquoise designs are made.

The Hartmans also do business in trade with Native American craftsmen who make Authentic Turquoise Jewelry. When not fashioning their own turquoise into their own designs, the Hartmans are trading with Navajo, Hopi, Zuni, and other Native American tribes for their best authentic turquoise jewelry creations.

A visit to The Four Corners region of the beautiful Southwest would not be complete without a stop in Durango.

By the way, Oprah visited Durango and loved it! Here come the crowds from New York!
