Turquoise is an opaque, blue-to-green mineral. It is rare and valuable and has been prized as a gem and ornamental stone for thousands of years due to its unique aqua hue. The pastel shades of turquoise have endeared it to many great cultures of antiquity: it has adorned the rulers of Ancient Egypt, the Aztecs, Persia, Mesopotamia, the Indus Valley, and ancient China. The most well-known jewelry pieces incorporating turquoise are those recovered from Tutankhamun’s tomb, most notably the Pharaoh's iconic burial mask which was liberally inlaid with the stone. Even to this day, we follow the same design principles of combining turquoise with other gemstones as our ancestors. Turquoise with coral for example is absolutely timeless.
PURPLE combines the stability of blue and the energy of red.
Purple is associated with royalty. It symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. It conveys wealth and extravagance. Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic.
Light purple evokes romantic and nostalgic feelings, and is a great choice for a feminine design.
