Different to snaye's.

I like the red Indian jewelley, looks cool. Hope it's not next hype though. Can see banter bre's getting on it.

Did you have to pay impost duty Jordan, or did they mark it down?

They put the full price, but marked as a gift. Didn't pay any tax

Why? Not being sarcy - I'm not the particularly knowledgable on the subject, but surely there's other Japanese craftsmen than can produce similar items of really high quality. Genuinely curious.

goro's doesn't do feather bracelet. already got the classic gold stamp bracelet, but that feather one is a nice addition

No, so that's why I'd personally opt for the double eagle head bangle.

Explaining why Goro's is the best option would require a deviation into the brand philosophy thread. In short, the only reason not to buy an original heritage brand is if another adds an innovation or different angle on it. Otherwise, the only other consideration is price. Better to wait, save and buy the original if the latter is the case. Only my humble opinion, of course - as was my previous post.

But it isn't as if Goros is the originator of Native American jewelry. Is it really less authentic to buy jewelry made by genuine Native Americans, just because it doesn't have the hype of Goros?

Don't be fucking ridiculous mue, the native americans travelled to Japan especially buy their jewelry.
