Did you know?

Turquoise is pretty but it was also thought to bring good luck.


The rich gold and beautiful turquoise of this pendant make this piece of jewelry a visual delight. At the lower half one notices the fine braiding detail. The extravagant materials suggest it was made for a wealthy individual.
