With a beautiful appeal, and uplifting tone, turquoise jewelry is some of the most gorgeous jewelry around. Coming in a cool blue or green toned color, usually with extremely unique black or colored specs, turquoise jewelry is coveted by many cultures and societies around the world, and has been for centuries. Dating back over 5,000 years, the December birthstone jewelry is one of the oldest known stones in history and has always been known for having intense protective powers, and amazing healing properties. And, these healing properties are probably the main reason why the gemstone was so popular in historic times. As noted in the historical book of Exodus, turquoise was said to be one of the gems that adorned the breastplate of the high priest. There is no doubt that turquoise has always been loved and coveted by warriors, kings, and shamans.
Perfect when formed into beads, when inlaid in silver, and even when accompanied with red or green gemstones, tranquil and soothing turquoise jewelry is very closely associated with the Native American culture in America. The Native American culture absolutely adores the beautiful turquoise gemstone and wears it proudly in the form of bracelets, earrings, eye-catching necklaces, artisan rings, and even magnificent-looking brooches. Known to define wisdom, beauty, and the power of immortality, turquoise was first used by Native Americans to guard burial sites, and worn in ceremonies to call upon the great spirit in the sky. Aside from it’s healing properties, the stunning gemstone also symbolizes luck, power, success, and creativity.
One of the main reasons why so many people loved to wear turquoise jewelry in the past, and why it has sustained the test of time, even today, and will for years and years to come in the future, is due to the fact that the gemstone is not only very pretty, but also, has a deep, natural quality to it as well. There is a wonderful essence that goes along with the turquoise gemstone, an essence that feels somewhat spiritual and extremely positive and earthy, and also, exudes a healthy dose of both elegance and sophistication. The gemstone has always been viewed as an “ornamental gem and a symbol of male power” throughout history, and was the favorite gift for friends to gift one another, in order to bring about clarity of vision and laser-sharp focus. These days, both men and woman alike enjoy the immense beauty and power that turquoise jewelry brings, and the fact that it empowers both of the sexes equally when worn in the form of jewelry.
A wonderful aspect of turquoise jewelry is that it can be dressed up or down. The December birthstone jewelry looks just as great with jeans and a t-shirt, as it does with a cocktail dress and heels or a suit jacket. The birthstone for Sagittarius, the month of December, turquoise is a mix of copper and aluminum. And, in its original form, it is an opaque mineral, and part of the Triclinic Crystal System. The Triclinic Crystal System is one of the 7 basic crystal systems, and is defined in that each of the vectors are of unequal lengths, which is the reason for the incredible beauty and luster of the spectacular jewelry. When all is said and done, there is truly no match for turquoise jewelry. The gemstone not only has a stunning appearance, rich history, and universal appeal, but it is also known for its incredible healing properties and powerful energies. It is said to strengthen the meridians of the body, and to enhance communication between the physical and spiritual world. When it comes to the most special kind of adornment, turquoise jewelry is always the right choice. And, at Sitara Collections, we have a wide variety of turquoise jewelry to choose from!
