My co-worker has tasked me with getting her discounted NA Jewelry during my trip to AZ next month. I have no idea where to look. Can anyone make a suggestion of where to go in the Tucson area? My co-worker expects me to get her something even though I have no idea where to look. Thanks

She "expects" you to get her something? What a pal.

Authentic handcrafted Native American jewelry is very expensive (hundreds of dollars) and highly coveted, mostly polished turquoise and sterling silver. It isn't usually discounted, unless it's a cheap imitation. Your friend might want to Google "Native American Jewelry" and check prices at the shops online to get an idea of what it actually costs.

I agree with Marcy. It's typically overpriced and you won't find many if any "discounts". I bought some opal/turquise on silver jewelry a couple of years ago. It was beautiful stuff, but very expensive.

I bought some cheap stuff at a rest stop on my way to Phoenix once. Most definitely the "cheap imitation" mentioned above. But I continue to get compliments on it, or maybe they're just being nice! LOL You can find people set up selling their wares at all kinds of strange places. I saw them at Gates Pass once, just sprawled out along the sidewalk. I would hit the gift shops, hard. (Tucson Mall has a great section near the food court) She wants it "discounted," it'll be fun, but not high quality.

Hope that helps!

We lived in Kayenta for 2 years and we bought 'old' pawn from each of the trading posts. The Navajo tribe has sales outlets so I'd get on the Navajo Nation site.

I highly recommend the gift shops (and the green house) at Tohono Chul Park for beautiful Arizona-related items of all kinds. You will find beautiful and reasonably priced Native American jewelry, Mata Ortiz and contemporary locally made pottery, Oaxacan folk art, hand-carved wood items (great walking sticks!), and hand-woven scarves and throws. You'll also find gifts for children, many books about the Southwest and desert gardening, as well as regional cookbooks and locally produced food gifts. Tohono Chul also has a lovely restaurant (indoor and patio dining) for when you are exhausted from touring the unique gardens and shopping.
Tohono Chul Park | Museum Shops |

The park is located in the near-Northwest suburb of Tucson near the intersection of Ina and Oracle Roads.

Tucson, AZ 85704

PS: GREAT Christmas decorations, too! You and your friend won't be disappointed by the jewelry.
