Re: Need Help Identifying Hallmark - Zuni?

ValkyrieVixen YOU are actually incorrect. There is a Tracey Knifewing and that would be the correct hallmarks. She is contemporary and collaborates with QVC just like Roderick Tenario. If you Google her you will find many pieces. I have had one or two older pieces myself. Quite popular!

Re: Help w/ Native American Hallmark

Join the group on face book. Zuni jewelry buyer beware. They have many native American members and can probably recognize the older pieces.

Re: Native American Zuni? Sterling Inlay Bear Pin/Pendant

There is a group you can join on fb that has many native American members. The pendant is nice but it looks like an import. If you join: zuni jewelry buyer beware. They can tell you immediately if it is legit or import. Great group for reference

Re: SW Silver & Inlay Ring: Marked VB

This is not vernon begay. Vernon uses VB and it is conjoined. Try Victor Begay instead. Also check tne sterling. It may be the pics but has a funny color to it.

Re: AZ3AP identification

More than likely it is a true vintage old pawn mark which is used commonly for anything vintage but doesn't make it old pawn. A combination of letters or letters and numbers where used as a code. Hand etched.

Re: Help with ID on ring with wolf/coyote head hallmark

It is a old southwestern shop hallmark. Mass produced using native and anglo workers. Can be found now in amerindian.com shop hallmarks. So glad because i have had many and no idea what it was.

I can't see the photo anymore but if it is chip inlay it is more than likely the work of Gibson Gene
