Tucson Turquoise, inside the American Antique Mall @ 3130 E. Grant Road @ Country Club in Tucson, is where Pat and Kim Messier have displayed their Native Southwest jewelry for sale.
We sell raw turquoise, turquoise cabochons, and also turquoise in finished jewelry. Tucson Turquoise specializes in American Turquoise including: Bisbee Turquoise from Bisbee, Arizona, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise from Globe, Arizona, Kingman Turquoise from Kingman, Arizona, and Morenci Turquoise from Morenci, Arizona. Many of these mines are no longer producing any turquoise! In addition, we sell finished turquoise jewelry through our other entity, Tucson Indian Jewelry. We sell both vintage jewelry by well known silversmiths, as well as lesser known silversmith. We also represent local silversmiths, including James Fendenheim, Rick Manuel, the Patania family, as well as Carlos Dias and Alberto Contreras and family.
