Turquoise
Turquoise, the blue cousin to lapis lazuli, has been known and valued for thousands of years. The early mines in Sinai, Egypt, were already worked out in 2000 B.C. Today the finest turquoise is found in Iran. Turquoise was first sent to Europe through Turkey, hence its name, which comes from "Turkish" in French.

The brilliant sky-blue color of turquoise has never lost its fascination for gem lovers. It became a classic stone to be set with silver. Cut en cabochon turquoise stones are used for all kinds of jewelry, including brooches, necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings. Due to its relative softness (5-6 on the Mohs scale) and its porous character it requires some care.

Turquoise is believed to promote good fortune, happiness, and a long life. Turquoise is a birthstone for those born in December.

Turquoise is indeed one of the most classic gemstone types frequently used in gemstone rings, though it is rather soft. Tuquoise is better suited for other types of gemstone jewelry too, including gemstone earrings, pins and brooches, as well as in necklaces and fashionable gemstone pendants.
