History: The Old Pawn Hat is a tribute to the significance turquoise and silver jewelry played in Navajo people's lives - not only as a piece of adornment, but a protector of good health and portable wealth. With limited access to money, the turquoise jewelry's role within a family was often their reserve of wealth. The jewelry would be used to secure lending from a trader or rather "pawned."
A staple hat for Double D Ranch, the Old Pawn sits high with a 6-inch open crown, a full pencil roll brim, a grosgrain ribbon band, and, of course, representations of old pawn jewelry. On top of your head, this hat can be thought to be your healing and protecting agent, a presentation of your portable wealth as well as an attractive physical ornament. Who knew a topper could serve so many roles?
