Turquoise is a powerful ritual material in Himalayan cultures, representing the clear blue of the sky. It is sometimes used as a gift to one’s betrothed, and the color is said to stay true as long as the lover’s affection does. This modern interpretation of a classic design features vibrant turquoise inlaid in sterling silver. Handmade in Nepal by members of the Shakya clan, descendants of an ancient culture that was traditionally known for its metalwork and whose capital was in present-day Nepal.


Handcrafted In Nepal. 1"L.


Believed to bestow the wearer with courage, luck, health, and protection, turquoise has been used in jewelry making for millennia by cultures as diverse as the Navajo, ancient Egyptians, and Tibetans. Turquoise can range in color from light yellow-green to dark blue, and usually contains turquoise matrix, the dark veins of other minerals with which it developed. It figures in the creation myth of the Anasazi Indians, who tell that the tribe first entered the world through the mouth of a New Mexico cave that is now a turquoise mine. In Tibet, the sky is called "the turquoise of heaven," and both men and women value jewelry featuring the gem in sky blue hues. Turquoise is sometimes given as a love token to one's betrothed, because its color is said to remain pure as long as the affection lasts.

            One earring arrived broken. I guess no one checked them though the inside plastic bag the earrings were in looks like it had been handled a lot.
            Who knows how long to get an unbroken pair after the return process.....

            Although turquoise has long been an important part of Navajo culture and ceremony, it was not until the railroads came to the American Southwest in the 1800s that artisans began producing sterling silver and turquoise jewelry for trade. These timeless Navajo earrings feature polished turquoise stones and hand-stamped sterling silver medallions in the style of conchas—decorative sterling silver medallions found on Spanish saddles.

            The hills of northern Thailand are home to about 20 distinct tribes, including the Hmong and the Karen. Each tribe has its own cultural traditions, but all the tribes are known for their silver jewelry, which many people use instead of paper money. Women wear their wealth in the form of collars, earrings, and bracelets. Our teardrop earrings are made in northern Thailand villages, in the spirit of hill-tribe craftsmanship. Made using white metal.

Here you’ll find the legendary, jewel-encrusted Topkapi Dagger, golden thrones, an 86-karat diamond, and many more remarkably ornate treasures. These gold, turquoise, and ruby accents are adaptations of jewels worn by women of the seraglio, where the wives of the Ottoman officials lived.

            Did you know that name for the deep blue-green stone we call turquoise is actually based on misinformation? It’s from the French word for Turkish, because European traders found the stone at Turkish bazaars and assumed it was mined nearby, although what they found was most likely from present-day Iran. Nevertheless, Turkish jewelers are known for their inventive designs, as evidenced by the ornate treasures of the Ottoman Topkapi Palace.

            Charleston, South Carolina, is a veritable outdoor ironwork museum, with its pedestrian-friendly streets and a tradition of cast-iron and wrought-iron gates, fences, and balconies that date back to the early 18th century. British styles were the earliest to take hold in the city, but a local style soon evolved and gained national attention, with elements that were influenced by German ironworkers and the neoclassical design that was popular in architecture of the 19th century.
