Coral has always been a precious trade commodity in landlocked Tibet, and turquoise is regarded as a fallen piece of the heavens. In honor of recent Tibetan conservation efforts, we pair faux versions of these stones with silver-tone metal for a contemporary take on traditional Tibetan adornment. Handcrafted in India by Tibetan refugees.


Handcrafted in India by Tibetan refugees. Inner strand 25"L; outer strand 28"L. Hook-and-eye clasp.


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.

          Great piece to wear with black, or a little something to dress up a bland outfit.

          Receive compliments each time I wear it and it goes great with my existing sterling and turquoise jewelry.

              I have been eyeing this necklace for years and finally decided to buy when it went on sale. Glad I did. It's very unique, well made, and stylish. It goes with many stlyes including Native American. Yes it's faux, but it looks great.

              I love that it was made by and supports Tibetan refugees. Products with a purpose are always more meaningful to me.

                    Nomadic Himalayan tribes wore their wealth in the form of jewelry—often turquoise, called gyu in Tibetan—that could be easily carried and exchanged. So highly regarded is turquoise in Tibetan culture that the blue of the sky is referred to as ''the turquoise of heaven.'' Using faux versions of turquoise and amber, Tibetan refugees living in India create this substantial and bold jewelry in a Mongolian-influenced but modern style.

                    In Tibet, turquoise (called gyu) and coral are two of the most highly valued materials. Turquoise has been used as currency, and coral is a precious trade object in this landlocked mountainous country. Nomadic people of the region frequently wear many pieces of turquoise and coral jewelry at once, as spiritual protection and as a way to keep their wealth at hand. By pairing faux versions of these stones with carnelian and handmade nickel and silver-plated beads, jewelers living on the Tibetan/Indian border re-create this traditional Himalayan design.

This romantic necklace is handcrafted in Thailand, where sapphires were once so plentiful that farmers would find them while plowing their fields. 24-karat gold vermeil and hand-faceted briole sapphires.

                    Roman emperors commissioned thousands of different designs and denominations of coins and people from Britain to Spain to Syria still turn up Roman coins while plowing their fields and digging in their gardens. For collectors, there's nothing more satisfying than pinpointing when an ancient bronze coin was first minted. The reproduction coins in our multistrand necklace depict an emperor on horseback under the words OPTIMO PRINCIPI, Latin for "highest prince." Several emperors used this title, but it's most often found on coins minted by the first-century emperor Trajan.

                    Jasper, a form of chalcedony, has been used since ancient times for everything from arrow tips to official carved seals to snuff bottles that were highly collectible in 19th- and early-20th-century China. This triple strand of green, reddish, and brown jasper beads is interrupted throughout by pearls, and is inspired by the beaded necklaces that were popular in the Mandarin court of the late 17th century.

                    The image of a handwritten letter, folded and sealed with wax, perhaps handed to a valet or maid for delivery, is a common theme in depictions of the 19th century. Many people had seals engraved with their initials or family crest. This sterling silver necklace is cast from the impression of an antique seal that may have belonged to someone associated with seafaring. The design features an escalop, an emblem of safe travel. Leaping dolphins, regarded as guides, signify protection across the vast sea. And seagulls represent the welcoming sound of the shore after a long voyage.
