So dainty and delicate you will hardly know you are wearing it, this elegant Delicate Turquoise Ovals Necklace is entirely handmade—gems, links, bezels, and jump ring closures—by Chilean lapidarists, who inlay each hand-shaped turquoise cabochon. Sterling silver. Natural variations will occur.
This Delicate Turquoise Ovals Jewelry celebrates turquoise, a gem that has maintained its popularity since antiquity. The National Gem Collection at our National Museum of Natural History curates turquoise gems and several stunning turquoise jewelry pieces, including the Marie Louise Diadem and a Turquoise Zuni Bracelet.
18"l. with 1"l. pendant.
Highly regarded by ancient civilizations for its unique aqua coloring, turquoise is a rare phosphate of copper that only forms in the earth's most dry and barren regions. The name turquoise derives from the fact that this gemstone was brought to Europe from eastern Mediterranean traders, known as Turks. Colors can range from green and greenish blue to sky blue. Turquoise is a birthstone for December.
