Antique and vintage silver jewelry inspires a universal love, from the older European 800 grade silver to higher grades of sterling silver jewelry and even the near-pure 980 quality designs. We understand the appeal sterling silver jewelry has for the avid collector because we share the same love, for its history as well as the characteristic style and design of each era and region.Here at NarVla, we have an ever-growing collection of vintage Native American jewelry that at any given point may include Zuni, Navajo, or any other known or non-specific tribal designs. From earrings, necklaces, bracelets, to rings, you'll also find a variety of Mexican silver jewelry pieces, many of which represent the Taxco region.
For the charm collector, we offer a wonderful mix of charms dating to the 1940s and later, with sterling silver puffy heart charms, those tokens of affection that still whisper their sentimental history through etched inscriptions of love and remembrance. You'll also find sterling silver figural and mechanical charms that represent U.S. mid-century road trips and enameled 800 silver shield-shaped travel souvenirs from European countries.
