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.

Since the first half of the 20th century, the mythical, celestial snow lion has been the national protector of Tibet, blazing with fearlessness and representing dominance over the Himalayan mountains. Before Tibet was incorporated into the People's Republic of China, the snow lion was found on the country's coins, stamps, and the national flag, and it is still a symbol of the Tibetan independence movement.

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.

Less than half a mile separates Europe from Asia at the narrowest point of Turkey’s Bosphorus strait. The Golden Horn is the name of an approximately 4-mile-long inlet whose harbor has sheltered boats for thousands of years, through four powerful empires. Its picturesque views have inspired painters, poets, and photographers—Leonardo da Vinci even designed a bridge for it in 1502.

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.
