A Buying Guide for Turquoise with Sunwest Silver

Sunwest Silver - Turquoise pendant and bracelet

Ernie Montoya started Sunwest Silver years ago, and has built it into one of the world’s largest turquoise suppliers, with six mines of its own, and over 30 different varieties of turquoise in stock. Famed throughout history, this beautiful blue stone has had a special place in the hearts and minds of the Native American peoples of the American Southwest, and every year at JOGS the world gets a chance to purchase some of the finest materials available.

Sunwest Silver - Turquoise Necklaces

Join us as we speak with Stacey Turpen, the man who is in charge of Sunwest’s turquoise from the time it is mined, while it is shaped and cut, and finally matched with the right buyers. Stacey explains how to judge turquoise on hardness, color, and matrix; how to avoid buying fake or imitation turquoise; and which types of turquoise are most appropriate for various uses.
