Handmade with care by Evan Knox, this Sterling Silver and Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Bracelet is dainty and sweet.
Used to celebrate December birthdays and just because it's pretty, turquoise is one of the most legendary of all the stones, reaching rock-star-rock-status in the worlds of healing minerals and fashion. Its dazzling blue-green shade made an appearance in ancient Egypt around 6000 BCE where it was incorporated into protective amulets and royal bling for the likes of King Tut and Cleopatra. One of the first gems to be mined, turquoise is considered a sacred stone by many Native American tribes, especially in the American Southwest, and has been used as a powerful healing tool for creating a connection between heaven and Earth. On the "woo-woo" level, turquoise is considered a master healer because it promotes an energetic flow of the highest vibration of love, the spiritual super food to heal the world.
