We always pay more
Pawn1st pawn shops are extremely knowledgeable Native American Jewelry buyers in Phoenix and the surrounding areas. We value this part of our business a great deal, because there can be far more to a single piece than meets the eye. Not only is there an amazing history within most every piece, there can be a great value. It is very important to get these types of items evaluated properly as many small details can easily be overlooked. If there is a lack of knowledge, or certain details are overlooked, it can dramatically lesson the value of your pieces. Make sure the company you visit has proper knowledge, experience and resources as they are crucial in the evaluation of these items. Most establishments will pass on the buying and lending of these items because they are not educated to properly. Many Native American Jewelry buyers simply estimate the melt value of the metal in the jewelry, leaving a lot of room for error and loss. Pawn1st always seeks the most value with any items we deal with especially in these areas. Our pawnbrokers are experienced, well trained and educated as well as have resources that most other establishments do not. Pawn1st will always give you the best deals when purchasing these items as well as find the highest possible value in each one of your piece.
We Buy, Sell & Loan
Not only do we buy, sell and loan on all forms of Native American Jewelry like Cuffs, Concho belts and squash blossoms, we also hold a great interest in other forms of the Native American Heritage such as art, rugs, blankets, sculptures and crafts. The level of value can range a great deal depending on the artist as well as the time periods in which they were created. Native American Jewelry became extremely popular and well known in the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s but in many cases a greater value can be found in items that were created earlier. One factor that plays a role in the value of these items is the Tribe in which they were created such as Navajo, Hopi, and Pueblo. Each tribe had similarities in there arts, crafts, and jewelry while at the same time maintaining a unique aspect of distinction.
Native American Jewelry Artists
Well known artists such as Charles Loloma, Kenneth Begay and Preston Monongye as well as others have had great successes in the widespread acknowledgement and high value on there pieces. These artists became popular in the early 50’s and were thought to bring a new style to Native American Jewelry. One thing you should be aware of is that there was and are so many Native American influential and successful artists, jewelry makers and craft makers. Some of these pieces were labeled and some were not. In many cases you truly need someone with experience and knowledge when it comes to evaluating the true nature of your piece.
