Cherokee Clan Jewelry


We are super excited to debut this new collection at the Cherokee Holiday this year. 

The Cherokee were a matriarchal society, clan membership comes down on the mother's side of the family. 

Each Clan had it's special attributes. You can read more about them on the individual clan pages.

How do I know what Clan I belong to?
