I love this color combination. The soft blue green colors of Turquoise and the glowing golden bronze Pearls make for a very eye-catching, one of a kind, head-turning piece of jewelry. The vase shaped Turquoise beads are from the Kingman Turquoise Mine in Arizona, USA. These beads are highlighted with flowered spacer beads, which are made in the USA from lead-free Pewter and plated with 22 K gold. The necklace alternates segments of Turquoise with segments of the color enhanced golden bronze cultured freshwater pearls. A pair of matching earrings completes the set.
Turquoise is associated with gods and goddesses of many ancient cultures from China, the Middle East, and the Americas. It was worn by Pharaohs and Aztec Kings. Native Americans used the stone symbolizing the sea and sky coming together, to bless warriors and hunters. Turquoise is thought to attract prosperity and success, enhance creativity and communication. Turquoise is the alternate birthstone for December. Almost all turquoise has been treated with a transparent resin in order to stabilize it, as it is a fragile stone in an untreated state.
