Inhabited for millennia by the Tohono O'odham and their predecessors, the present-day city of Tucson traces its origins to 18th Century Spanish America. The Spanish Army, aiming to secure their notional territory against Apache incursion, established the Presidio San Agustín del Tucsón in 1775; this small military outpost was the nucleus around which the city of Tucson came to flourish. A partial restoration of the old Presidio
is just a five-minute walk from the Krikawa studio!
Upon Mexican independence, Tucson would become one of the northernmost cities in the state of Sonora, passing over to American control in 1854, the last territorial expansion of the contiguous United States. Tucson was Arizona's largest city until the early twentieth century and served as the capital of Arizona Territory until 1889.
Today, Tucson is a diverse and thriving city, drawing upon centuries of indigenous and Hispanic culture, and welcoming thousands of new residents each year from the United States and abroad. Like our friendly rival city to the north, Tucson has become one of the fastest-growing cities in America, while in our case retaining a laid-back Southwestern charm.
Although we at Krikawa have developed an airtight system for designing and delivering custom jewelry for our customers all over the world, we are proud of Tucsonans. If you are able, we would be thrilled to welcome you to our downtown studio. Click here
