Blue Turquoise Jewelry
Blue turquoise has been coveted and sought after for its use in jewelry since the ancient Egyptians scoured the Arabian Desert searching for deposits of this treasured gemstone. Since then, cultures all over the world have prized blue turquoise for its beauty and spiritual properties. It has become increasingly featured in contemporary jewelry pieces. Napoléon Bonaparte even gifted his bride, Empress Marie-Louise, a crown of diamonds and blue turquoise from Persia.
Blue turquoise is formed when there is the presence of copper and the absence of iron in Mother Nature’s complex, and from that a delicate process crafts turquoise over millions of years. There is a broad variety of hues seen in blue turquoise stones, ranging from pale sky blue, to deep ocean blue, to all sorts of delightful blue-green combinations.
