Frequently Asked Questions

Do you charge any fees to evaluate my jewelry and make me an offer?
No!  The price quote is FREE and you are under no obligation to sell your jewelry.

Do you accept broken/damaged jewelry?
It depends.  Be sure to clearly show the damage in your photos.

Usually, it is too costly to repair Indian jewelry, but some items with missing or cracked stone(s) may still be acceptable.


What kinds of Native American jewelry do you buy?
We only buy Indian jewelry that is made of Sterling Silver.  No nickel, copper, brass, or other metals.

 

Also, we do not buy beaded items made of stone, shell, turquoise nuggets, wood, seed beads, or other synthetic materials.  This also includes fetish necklaces and other carvings.

Do you buy other jewelry, such as gold and diamonds by mail?
Yes!  Our parent company, National Jewelry Buyers, is one of the leading jewelry exchanges in America.


Can I BUY jewelry from you?
Sorry, we only resell to our network of wholesale buyers (store owners, wholesalers, etc).  We are not presently accepting new accounts.


Do you buy other kinds of Native American goods (rugs, pottery, kachina dolls, fetishes, baskets, artifacts, etc)?
Sorry, we only buy jewelry at this time.

Can I visit you in Albuquerque to sell my jewelry in person?
Absolutely!  We are located at 5815 Menaul Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM.

Should I clean/polish my jewelry?
No!  The natural tarnishing process often increases the potential vintage value of Native American jewelry.  Very old jewelry that is polished will actually be worth less if polished.

 

I am interested in selling a large collection.  How should I proceed?
Please send us an email at sales@nationaljb.com or call us at 1-505-888-1807.

I am not interested in selling, but simply need my jewelry appraised.  Do you offer appraisal service?

Sorry, we do not offer formal appraisal services (for insurance or other purposes).  We only make offers to purchase jewelry.
