This practical description hides the vivid beauty of the colour of turquoise. Although turquoise doesn’t have the “bling” of transparent coloured stones like ruby, emerald, and sapphire, it is still a beautiful addition to your jewellery. Sue, like many designers, uses turquoise to create beautiful and elegant jewellery.
You will love this turquoise jewellery for its combination of ancient heritage and its unforgettable colour.
Turquoise is one of the world’s most ancient gems. The Pharaohs and rulers of ancient Egypt wore turquoise jewellery. Chinese craftsmen were carving it more than 3,000 years ago and Turquoise is the national gemstone of Tibet. The name itself derives from the French “pierre tourques”, or “Turkish stone.” This reflects the fact that Turquoise almost certainly arrived in Europe from Turkey.rkish sources.
Turquoise was also both a gemstone and a form of currency used by some Native American tribes. The Apaches believed that turquoise attached to a bow or firearm increased a hunter’s or warrior’s accuracy.
