SilverTQ, LLC Announces New Consumer Education Initiative to Differentiate Authentic vs. Fraudulent Native American Indian Jewelry

July 9, 2018 – Imagine buying an exquisite Native American bracelet, earing, necklace, ring, or craft item, only to later learn that it was made in a far off country, and was also counterfeit. Art and handicraft products made by Native Americans are highly regarded and cherished, but of late an epidemic of counterfeit goods has been spreading in the US.

Fake Indian arts and crafts have been reported from Santa Fe and elsewhere, thus depriving Native artists of their livelihood. Some unconfirmed estimates peg the share of fake items as high as 80 percent. There is reason to be concerned, as a recently busted network had a declared total value of $11 million, intended to be sold at double the rate in retail. Fake Native American Indian goods can also be found on online marketplaces, as well as art galleries.

There is great satisfaction and admiration associated with acquiring and selling authentic Native American Indian handcrafted jewelry. It is a true art form uniquely identified with the rich historical tapestry of the Native American Indian culture,” say Sam Shoultz and Frank Petrouskie, owners of SilverTQ, LLC.

SilverTQ has now launched an educational initiative to show how to discern genuine Native American Indian jewelry from fake and imitated versions sold fraudulently in mass markets with false artist hallmarks.

The best way for one to ensure purchasing true Native American Indian handcrafted jewelry would be for the buyer to research the seller’s reputation and to find out how long he/she has been involved in the business. This information should help direct the buyer to deal with a knowledgeable and honorable seller who is eager to impart their expertise involving these beautifully made jewelry items,” say Sam Shoultz and Frank Petrouskie.

SilverTQ is the online place to buy original and authentic Native American Jewelry with complete trust. More details are available on the official SilverTQ website.


After nearly forty years of operating a prominent regional wholesale business, SilverTQ, LLC is proud to offer their fine, authentic Native American jewelry to the online retail customer. Owners Sam Shoultz and Frank Petrouskie look forward to expanding their current wholesale base of business as well as establishing new and loyal retail customers.
