Albert Lee is a consummate jeweler who carries on a family tradition that goes back six generations. He is inspired and mentored by his father Alfred Lee Sr., who is himself an award winning artist. From the Four Corners area of the Navajo reservation, Albert carries on the family tradition and business with a reputation that is not only national, but international as well. Albert creates necklaces, bracelets, concho belts, rings and squash blossoms necklaces with a blend of traditional and contemporary Navajo design.
Albert specializes in using magnificent stones, set in designs that are inspired by tradition, but have a modern allure that is timeless. He uses very heavy gauge silver and gold to enhance the extremely fine grades of turquoise, coral, sugilite, lapis and other gems, which he hand cuts and polishes. The fit and finish to his jewelry is impeccable. Albert’s creations are statement pieces, distinctive, bold and rich.
Albert is always a delight to talk to with his warm gracious hugs and laughs; he is willing to share his knowledge of the techniques used in his work. If you enjoy the finest in technical excellence, rare gemstones and the highest quality in contemporary jewelry, Albert Lee is a must see at shows and events.
