New Mexico is home to a variety of different communities. A unique combination of Native American tradition and Spanish influence, the Land of Enchantment is known for its scenic views, delightful cultural mix and of course, the southwest style. 

Traditionally, here in New Mexico both men & women can be seen wearing large pieces of silver or turquoise. Turquoise is worn in the spirit of a celebrated culture and community, respect for favored stones & artisans, and in appreciation for strength and passion.


Located in the heart of downtown Albuquerque and the Plaza in Santa Fe, Sunwest Silver Co Inc is a family owned business started in 1972. Ernest Montoya started selling selling Native American handmade jewelry out of his car after coming home from Vietnam. 

Today,  Sunwest Silver Co Inc is the industry’s leading source for turquoise, silver charms & findings, and finished handmade jewelry created by the Southwest’s finest Native artisans.




Shop our collection of handmade jewelry from the most loved and recognized artists around the Southwest. For over 35 years, we have fostered relationships with artists that allow us to showcase an unrivaled selection of handmade Native American jewelry.
