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.

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.

Topkapi Palace in Istanbul is a vast and unimaginably lavish complex that was home to the Ottoman Sultans for most of their six-century reign. Within its walls were mosques, courtyards, kitchens, banks, and the famous 100-room harem where the sultan’s mother, wives, and consorts lived.

Ottoman sultans called Istanbul’s magnificent Topkapi Palace home for nearly 400 years. It functioned as a small city, with courtyards, living quarters, and mosques to serve a population of up to 4,000. Ottoman wealth was on full display in the Imperial Treasury, which is now a part of the vast palace that is open to the public. The jewel-covered swords, mirrors, and armor in the treasury are the inspiration for this faceted green onyx pendant on a chain of gold vermeil and pyrite beads.
