Pawn Collection, Navajo Concho Belt, Justin Wilson, Kingman Turquoise

You hear the term "pawn" used frequently with Native American jewelry. It is most often used when someone is trying to describe a piece as being old or just not in that good of condition. Perry Null Trading Company is a "pawn" store and along with purchasing new art it is a big part of what we do. Pawn is simply jewelry that was taken in a transaction where cash money was given as a loan. We keep a piece of jewelry taken in pawn for over a year and if the customer has not come back to pay their cash loan we put it out for sale, what we call dead pawn. Pawn jewelry can represent pieces that are both old and new. At the end of each month we pull our dead pawn and put it out for sale. If you want to make sure that you are really buying authentic Native American handmade pawn jewelry you should do it from a pawn establishment like Perry Null Trading Company. A Trading Company that has been doing business in Gallup, New Mexico since the 1930s.

This belt comes out of our dead pawn collection and is around 20 years old. The belt is made by Navajo silversmith Justin Wilson and has his hallmark on the backside. You will find 2 stones missing, but don't worry you have another 206 that will make them go unnoticed. Justin designed the 15 conchos to look like beautiful turquoise butterflies, and the buckle the largest of them all. They have been made using a cluster of sky blue Kingman Turquoise stones.
