Splurge on aboriginal jewellery in Arizona Add to ...

This is a place with its own style, and you’ll be tempted to pull out your wallet and buy a piece of it as soon as you arrive.

But instead of collecting cheap turquoise or fake aboriginal junk, head to the Heard Museum of American Indian Art in downtown Scottsdale, Ariz., for the real thing.

The choices are many, but my pick would be a Debbie Silversmith sterling silver concho belt. The granddaughter of legendary Navajo jewellery maker Kenneth Begay, Silversmith incorporates her granddad’s famous swirls in her gorgeous contemporary designs. About $3,000. heardmuseumshop.com
