            Comments about Navajo Turquoise Necklace:

            I ordered two of these as gifts. As a native New Mexican, I recognize value in Native American jewelry, and even at the sale price, the necklace does not justify the price.

            Awkward type of clasp makes it impossible to add extenders or magnetic clasps. I am not sure whether I would recommend it or not

                    Love the colour of the stones. The necklace could be a little longer, as it is almost snug against my neck, but it is beautiful. I usually pair it with another, longer necklace that compliments it.

                    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 Imperial Treasury in Istanbul’s Topkapi Palace is still home to the most lavish riches of the Ottoman era. 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 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.
