Raw Turquoise in Tiny 24K Gold Hoops

$150

Our December birthstone is Turquoise, and once again we have some lovely gemstones to use in our earrings and necklaces! These are light and dreamy and you can match them with our other gold and turquoise pieces. We up-leveled them by adding a thick electroplating of 24K gold over our cast brass medallion. This combo allows for all the beauty and durability of the Gold finish while being much a more affordable option than solid cast gold!

Turquoise is perhaps the oldest decorative stone in mankind's history, the Taliswoman of Kings and Queens, Shamans, and Warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch. The delicate veining or mottled webbing in cream or brown is inherent to the stone and serves to enhance its character.

The name Turquoise is derived from the French, pierre turquoise, meaning “Turkish stone,” because the trade routes that brought Turquoise to Europe from the mines in central Asia went through Turkey, and Venetian merchants often purchased the stone in Turkish bazaars. 

For thousands of years, Turquoise has spanned all cultures, prized as a symbol of wisdom, nobility and the power of immortality. Among the Ancient Egyptians, Persians and Chinese, Aztecs and Incas of South America, and Native North Americans, Turquoise was sacred in its adornment and for power, luck, and protection. Turquoise strengthens the meridians of the body and the subtle energy fields, enhancing communication between the physical and spiritual worlds. Placed on the Third Eye, it supports intuition and meditation. On the throat chakra, it releases old vows, inhibitions, and allows the soul to express itself once more. 

1" in diameter, 24K gold hoops and earwires.
