For the Navajo, turquoise is believed to ensure favor with one’s yei, a holy being who mediates between worlds. Navajo artisans in Arizona create these earrings using smooth cabochons set in sterling silver.


Handcrafted in Arizona. 1/2"W x 1 1/4"L.


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.

      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.
