Nomadic Himalayan tribes wore their wealth in the form of jewelryoften turquoise, called gyu in Tibetanthat 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.
I find myself looking for occasions to wear this necklace. It is bright and confident and makes a statement. Very stylish without being gaudy. It's cheerful enough to banish winter blues and it makes me look great!
