    Comments about Chilean Turquoise Necklace:

    I have searched many years for a turquoise necklace in this simple yet elegant form. I accidentally only ordered the necklace when I had intended to order the earrings in the same combination set. NG graciously honored the combination order and I anxiously await the earrings and can not wait to see them on my wife.

      This beautiful set was given to me by my mother for my 50th birthday. It is a quality piece that is very comfortable to wear. Not too heavy, especially the earrings, and very well made. Thanks Mom!

      In the Andes mountains at elevations of more than 12,000 feet, open trenches accessible only by mule yield gleaming stones, including lapis lazuli, the national stone of Chile. The Inca kingdom flourished in this part of the world, and today jewelers in family-owned shops in Santiago draw on geometric Inca designs to create pieces that blend history and geography into wearable art. The tapered forms of these lapis lazuli, turquoise, jasper, chrysocolla, and pyrite stones, outlined in sterling silver, echo the shape of ancient stone doorways found at Incan ruins.

      Did you know that the 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.
