Navajo Native American jewelry is one of the most readily available Indian Jewelry in the Southwest.
They use various size stones: turquoise, onyx, hematite, to name a few; or shells: mother of pearl, coral as examples. Most use a bezel to hold the stone/shell in place on a solid sterling silver back. They can use one or multiple stones/shells or a combination of both on a single piece of jewelry. The Navajo silversmiths make many pieces such as necklaces, earrings, bolo ties, pendants, money clips, belt buckles, and rings.
There are also strung stones/shells into various designs of necklaces, earrings, etc.
Much of the Bead work, made with seed-beads, are made by the Navajo, which include earrings, hair barrettes, key chains, and other items.
