Turquoise Stud Earrings
Turquoise was initially found more than 7500 years ago and has held great importance globally to several different cultures including the Romans, Ancient Egyptians, Native American Indians, Aztecs, Incas and early Tibetans.
They treasured the gemstone for it’s visual appeal, and the rich symbolism and deep spiritual meaning it represented for them. Today turquoise remains a very popular gemstone in contemporary jewellery. Turquoise forms within rocks in arid climates in various countries including North America, Mexico and Egypt. It can vary in colour, with different shades of blue to green. Blue stones are rarely found in nature and it is often the sky blue type that you will find within jewellery.
