Native American arrowhead necklace review: A little jewel of a necklace!

Hello all

I recently bought a few articles from Etsy and thought I would share one of them with you by reviewing this Native American arrowhead necklace. If you know this site, you know that I love Etsy! A wonderful site where artists can set up “shop” and sell their art. And plenty of Native American artists and wonderful art. 🙂 You can always find something unique on Etsy! Check it out if you have not already!

HonuHippie and Etsy

Well if you had not guessed it by now, I loooove Etsy 🙂 To see a review of another beautiful piece I found on Etsy, see here. The cool thing about Etsy is that you can find artists from all over the world and very cool Native American shops. To read about some of my favorite, click here. I love encouraging local artists where I live as well as on Etsy. Native artists from all over the place, or individuals who just like to put out Native inspired products. And what can I say about the HonuHippie shop! Well it is awesome. It is full of turquoise and beautiful stones. Gorgeous colorful necklaces with stones such as turquoise, agate (see more about it below), jasper, jade, peridot, etc. If you like stones, this is the place to be! And although some might say that the prices are a bit high, I think they are fair for the quality you get. I just wish the exchange rate would be better between USA and Canada 🙁

Arrowhead necklace

The Stone Arrowhead necklace

Well first off, the necklace was delivered very quickly (3 days) considering I am in Canada and it had to cross the border. That is some quick and inexpensive service! It was beautifully packaged and arrived without any cracks or chips. Stone arrowhead

And if we take a closer look at the necklace, we can really see the quality. Look at that Dragon vein agate stone on the right! The marble effect is just gorgeous and so is the earthy color. First off, the arrowhead shape is very significant within the Native culture. It is representative of the battles our ancestors had to fight and the strength it took.

And second, the center piece, the agate stone itself. According to the necklace description and my own research, the agate is represents a few different things. It is a protection stone and a source of strength. A good stone to carry around or to place in your medicine bag. And it also used to be included in the warriors’ breastplate to protect them from their enemies. A strong Stone arrowheadlittle stone! And most importantly, it is a balancing stone, a “yin yang” energy. It is also calming and healing (by placing it in water the sick person would drink). Finally the agate stone is an energy stone. Not in the sense that it gives you bottomless energy, but rather little needed bursts here and there, thus conserving energy. I do not know about you but it seems like one heck of a good stone!

And then you have the jasper and turquoise stones as well. First the jasper stone is known as a nurturing stone, that induces comfort and relaxation. And finally, the turquoise, a very old sacred stone used a lot by the Najavo people. It is said to bring good fortune and to cleanse you of negativity. It also has healing properties such as pain relieving and detoxifying effects. Wear it on your solar plexus for maximum effect.

So I do not know about you but it seems like one hell of a good necklace to wear around your neck! Talk about being protected with all those stones 🙂 And I know not everyone might believe in the power of stones and crystals and I can respect that. But even without the power of the stones, this necklace is a keeper. It is the perfect length and the perfect weight. It goes well with a variety of outfits and colors. I have worn it with bright color tops as well as more somber ones and it always looked good. The little silver feather on top of the agate is just the cherry on the sundae. Great details and lovely finish (including the clasp which is of great quality). 

As you can then tell, I love this Native American Arrowhead necklace! I do get compliments on it and it just makes me feel protected wearing it. How about you? Do you believe in the power of stones? Do you like this necklace? Would you wear it? Comment below and I will answer you.

Once again, get yours here.

    I appreciate Etsy as much as you. I found my daughter’s prom dress for $50 including shipping. Where else can you get a homemade, quality prom dress at that price?

    Anyway…beautiful stone. I have seen these before at crafts fairs, pow wows and the county fair. $50 isn’t expensive for something so beautiful. It’s meaning is special. I met a Shamen in Alabama who had one. She would use it in the healing arts.

      Yay for Etsy!! I need to restrain myself or I would buy everything on there! I can literally spend 5 hours looking at stuff on Etsy! It seems like you got one hell of a good deal on that prom dress. Wow! And I agree that 50$ is not that expensive for all the stones you get.

    I really enjoyed your review, and it is a beautiful necklace – not something you see on everyone which is a bonus! I like that the stones weren’t just thrown together, but actually have a meaning and purpose. I have looked on etsy before, and while the prices may be high in many cases, I think we’re so used to buying in big box and chain stores, we forget about what it takes to create something from scratch, by an actual human being. How wonderful you encourage and support local artists, they don’t deserve to be overshadowed.

      hi Hindy
      I am glad you know Etsy and enjoyed the necklace. It is very unique looking for sure. And I agree, although it might be a bit pricier to buy from local artists, I will keep doing it. because then you get something unique that has not been outsourced to China.

    Great article, that Native American Arrowhead Necklace looks stunning, something I think my sister would love for a Xmas gift!
    For anyone that doesn’t believe in the power of stones and crystals, try doing a crystal meditation. I’m not sure if there is a special name for that type of meditation? I did one in rehab (yes drug addict!) and we all lay down and had to place crystals along our body in certain places. About half way through the mediation I could feel some of the crystals almost burning into me. The lady that did the meditation then explained what each stone was for, why it was placed on a specific place on our bodies and what it means if each stone/ place felt strange during the meditation. It was spot on!

      hi Lynne
      wow that must have been an awesome experience! Crystals sure have their different meanings and purposes and they need to be used carefully. How did you feel after the meditation?

        I felt totally out of it for a good few minutes… like a zombie lol.
        But after maybe 20 minutes I felt very energized for a while. I had a bad night that night though with disturbing dreams.
        I think being in rehab and constantly doing therapy related things for the whole day can make things very up and down. Often to heal we must first go through some intense pain! I often hand disturbing dreams when I had a break through in some aspect of my healing.
        In fact I had a disturbing dream last night about smoking, my first one. I stopped smoking 9 days ago. Hopefully this is a break through for the smoking because I have been struggling so much with it!

          oh absolutely Lynne!!
          Dreams tell us a lot that our conscious does not allow us to see through certain things. Dreams are so telling and being in rehab brings up a lot. As you are constantly going over trauma. And good for you for stopping smoking!

      hi Ryan
      it would sure make a beautiful gift! Well I am not familiar with any specific way. But when you see and touch the stones you can feel the weight of them. That’s normally an indicator. As well as their color.

    I never know where to find these kinds of things and know so many people that love this type of jewelry, especially when it has meaning behind it. I really appreciate the style and artwork that goes into it. You have some really great recommendations throughout the site that I noticed and may have just helped me take care of some birthday and holiday shopping for more than a few people! I will definitely be returning!

    What a beautiful looking piece of art. I have always love Native American stuff, especially the jewelry. A good friend of mine gave me an authentic choker for my 21st birthday many moons ago. I also remember arrowhead hunting with my older brother on the Oregon coast. There was an area that I, unfortunately, cannot remember that was well known to have a lot of them. I never found one but my brother did.

    Thanks for the trip down memory lane. 🙂

    Great review on the gem arrow head. Etsy truly is a wonderful platform for artists selling their art. I don’t mind paying the extra for the quality. It’s also personalised which I like. I don’t like shopping in mainstream shops with mass manufactured products at least not to give as gifts to close friends. That turquoise color is my favorite, it’s just beautiful. Thanks for the share.

    Such an interesting site! I am not native but I have always felt very close to the culture. I used to think I was Pocahontas when I was 3 :-). What a beautiful necklace! I love stones and things. I have about 12 stone necklaces, a couple pairs of stone earrings, bracelettes, and a bowl full of loose stones lol. I have to go about 40 minutes to Rama in Ontario to get my stuff. I go on etsy and never even thought to find my stones here! Thanks for the reminder! Awesome.
    Btw I like Lynne’s comment! So true.

      hi Randi-Lynne
      oh yes Etsy is a wonderful place to buy stones! I just bought a bunch, such as a rose quartz and a tibetan quartz. And I feel the same connection to the culture and traditions. It is just my way of life 🙂
