      Comments about Navajo Turquoise Earrings:

      These are a classic design that blends with both Native American and other types of jewelry. The turquoise is not of the highest quality, but since National Geographic vouches for its being a Native American product, we can assume that it is geniune turquoise.

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.
