Collection: Native American, Opal, Aztec & Afghan Jewellery, etc.

Native American, Opal, Aztec & Afghan Jewellery etc.

There are some stunning authentic pieces in these collections. Unlike the mass-produced copies sometimes seen online and elsewhere, many of the items we posted here are one-offs.

In the case of the Native American pieces, our supplier (a lady who loves Native American culture) visits the artisans who make the jewellery and has a great working relationship with many of these gifted jewellery makers.

As for the Afghan jewellery, many years ago, when the world was safer, another wonderful lady we knew used to go out to Afghanistan and source this fabulous traditional tribal jewellery (some of it set with carnelian or lapis lazuli). She used to sell them to establishments such as Liberty's in London and, astonishingly enough, to our little Guru Boutique. Guru's Beryl loved these pieces and found it hard to let them go when people purchased them, but obviously, she couldn't keep them all for herself. Nowadays, you can buy copies of these beautiful pieces on platforms such as Etsy for a fraction of the price of the real thing, but authenticity is best. If you agree, please check out the photos we have posted. Just before we closed the physical shop, we took these remaining treasures home, but obviously, we can't keep them all for Beryl to wear, so we have posted some photos on the group for you to see.

Let us know if you want to own any of these Native American or Afghan pieces, and we'll try to prise them out of Gurus Beryl's hands.
