Turquoise

History

The word “turquoise” was derived from the French term “pierre turquoise,” meaning “stone of Turkey.” This was after a 16th century European misconception that the stones originated in Turkey, when in fact they were first discovered in Persia. Turquoise is formed over millions of years with a chemical reaction when water leaks into rocks containing copper and aluminum minerals. Experts believe turquoise was first mined in 6000 B.C., by ancient Egyptians. Today, it is mined in countries all around the world, including, China, Iran, the United States, and Tibet.

Turquoise jewelry was first discovered within Egyptian tombs that date back to 3500 B.C. Cultures around the world have embraced the tradition of turquoise jewelry in the belief that it possesses healing and protective powers. While turquoise jewelry continues to be worn by many who believe it will attract money, luck, and love, today, it is also a prevalent fashion accessory and serves as a December birthstone, as well as the stone for the fifth and eleventh wedding anniversaries.

Types of Turquoise

Turquoise may range in color from light blue to green. It may contain a variety of natural definitions, from white to black, which adds a one-of-a-kind look to each stone. While the variances in color and matrix do not affect the value of the stone, there are properties that make some turquoise more expensive than others, most likely color uniformity and vividness. Turquoise jewelry is often treated in order to bring out the vibrant color and radiance of each stone.

Caring for Your Turquoise Jewelry

Like all natural gemstones, turquoise can be damaged if not cared for properly. Clean with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth, drying after washing. Avoid scratches by storing separately from other jewelry. Avoid exposure to oils, perfumes, and chemicals that may affect the stone’s vivid color.

    Review of the Sterling Silver Marquise-Shaped Turquoise Inlay Ring

    Pros:

    - Fits true to size.
    - Cute, unique band design.
    - After a few months, the stone hasn't fallen out.
    - The person who received the ring as a gift didn't return it, so I suppose it's fashionable enough.
    - Reasonably priced (IF any real turquoise is in the the stone).

    Cons:

    - Must have been reconstituted with chalk and easter egg dye.. no matrix anywhere on the stone, and not in a flattering way - just plain artificial in appearance.
    - The color of the ring I received was a pastel, powder blue.. and no, not the beautiful blue one would see in, say, sleeping beauty turquoise. The color didn't resemble any turquoise I've ever seen (including that from jewelers and artists in the Southwest).
    - Anyone with the slightest knowledge of turquoise could eyeball this ring and be about %70 sure that it's more artificial than anything else (I realize the ring wasn't going to be identical to the illustration, but c'mon.. No matrix? Light powder blue?).

    For what it's worth, on style alone, it's a fine looking ring.

    The ring is long (it covers from the base of my finger up to about half my knuckle), but it's gorgeous! If you like big (but not over the top) jewelry, you'll love this ring.

    I bought 2 of these rings. One for my daughter on her 22nd birthday and the other for myself. The size runs a little large but the rings are gorgeous. Very happy with the purchase.

    Now this is what you call a bold ring.....and I love it. It's larger than I expected, but it really makes a statement. Not for all occasions....more of a fun ring.

    I bought this ring due to the fact that it was not a traditional southwest setting and I am totally amazed how beautiful it is. I've had several compliments on it. I was surprised on how well it matched other light colored turquoise rings I have. Its long and stylish. I highly recommend this ring.
