New Age in Turquoise and Turquoise Jewelry

American Turquoise Jewelry can compete in global trade

The United States economy has slowed dramatically despite what government reports and president Obama claims. We must realize they do need to be optimistic or we would be in a hell of a state. As we have passed the 15,000,000,000,000.00 point we can no longer even pay the interest on the money we have borrowed from the world and soon we will lose possession of the world bank. There is no doubt, we are in a very serious situation that has some very interesting implications – the U.S. is the peace keepers of the world and what will the world do with out the U.S. to come to their rescue? Anyway, as individual Americans we must now be aggressive for ourselves and start reaching out to find our own way to stay afloat in these trying times that are upon us now and the uncertainty of tomorrow.

Turquoise and Turquoise Jewelry is popular in many parts of the world, did you know it was first discovered over 7,000 years ago in Egypt? There are examples of Turquoise Jewelry are on display in the Cairo Museum that have been carbon dated back to 5500 B.C. People in many areas of the world have worn Turquoise for thousands of years and still love it as much as they alway have.

Different cultures around the world do not adorn themselves as lavishly as Americans and Tibetans do, however, there is a great market out there for American Turquoise and American Turquoise Jewelry as American Turquoise is some of the finest in the world and the world loves American Turquoise.

As the American market has slowed down and consumers are hanging on tight to their wallets, other economies around the globe are doing quite well and business is as usual. The time is upon us to look to the world and find new places to sell our goods. We must re-evaluate what type of Jewelry will be appropriate to market than design and develop new Jewelry styles that will fit into their lifestyles.

It would be intelligent for American business to take control of their own destiny and seek the way for the future well-being of their own businesses. It would not be intelligent to sit back and watch your business fall deeper and deeper into debt and disaster. Lets get busy and market ourselves to the world!

The Beauty of Turquoise

Royston Turquoise JewelryThe beauty of Turquoise – Turquoise was found by the Egyptians over 7,500 years ago. When it was found the natives believed it was a stone sent from the great fathers above. They called Turquoise the sky stone and worshiped it to have spiritual powers.

Turquoise runs from a light blue to dark blue which comes from Arizona and light green to dark green which comes from Nevada. Turquoise has a matrix which is actually the rock that the Turquoise was formed in. Turquoise is a sedimentary stone meaning it comes from moisture that seeps down in the earth and gets its colors from the minerals that the moisture collects, they are iron, copper and aluminum sulphates.

Indian Turquoise Jewelry – In Jeopardy

Turquoise JewelryTurquoise News – American Indian Turquoise Jewelry in Jeopardy

In this day and age Native American Indians of the Southwest are thinking differently than in the past. The youngsters are now going to college and they want to be part of the standard American society. Many young Navajo individuals do not want to follow in their family traditions or trade. I have been told by many that Navajo kids would rather work at McDonald’s then learn the Jewelry trade.

In the past several months, the Silver market has escalated astronomically and as of today, (6-2-11,) the Silver market is at $36.15 per ounce, which is up from about $16.00 per ounce one year ago. Even at $16.00 per ounce the Navajo Jewelers were having a hard time coping with the high price of Silver as it had set at $6.00 per ounce for many years.

When you factor in the recession and the cost increases that have been taking place for Turquoise, the Native Americans are loosing interest in making Jewelry as their investment in materials are astronomical and the marketplace is having difficulties. Many Native American Jewelers are looking for and getting jobs in other fields today and the production level of Native American Turquoise Jewelry is down dramatically for 2011 so far.

It is possible a shortage of Native American Turquoise Jewelry could have a positive long term affect as well, however, it is doubtful inexpensive authentic American Indian Turquoise Jewelry will return to the marketplace.
