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.

          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.

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.

          During the 1st century AD, glass production in the Roman world drastically changed as the art of glass blowing was discovered and vessels for everyday use began to be made in aqua hues. Remains of many 2,000-year-old drinking glasses, vases, and jugs continue to be uncovered across the former Roman Empire, especially in Israel. Each glass medallion in this remarkable necklace was once part of an object that was created more than two millennia ago. It may have been part of a water vessel carried by a servant, or a bottle that held perfume or medicine.
