Unique Turquoise jewelry designs
In many cultures of the Old and New Worlds, Turquoise has been esteemed for thousands of years as a holy stone, a bringer of good fortune or a talisman In earlier times, Turquoises were even responsible for the material well being of the wearer. The Persian scholar Al-Qazwini wrote: 'The hand that wears a Turquoise and seals with it will never see poverty.' Turquoise was often worn on the turban in order to protect their wearer against the 'evil eye'. As talismans, they adorned daggers, sabers and the bridles of horses. Turquoise has been worn as natural protection against the powers of darkness. In earlier times they preserved horse and rider from unexpected falls, they are regarded today as the protective stone of pilots, air crews and other occupational groups who are exposed to an especially high degree of risk. I like to use Turquoise with varied shades of blues and greens to create unique Turquoise and Sterling Silver jewelry designs, The natural beauty of the variations make Turquoise a gemstone that has no equal.
