The sleeping beauty mine has been closed for a number of years. Turquoise received its name from Turkey. Long ago the most sought after turquoise in the world came from Persia. It was prized for its “robin’s egg” blue color and lack of matrixing. The Europeans who came to covet this beautiful material called it Turquoise because that was the point of entry into Europe.
Here at the gallery over half the store is comprised of one of a kind pieces. As a result, we tend to highlight these distinctive stones and designs. These one of a kind designs typically start with a one of a kind stone. From there our designer will create a one of kind setting. Once the metal has been cast the stones are set with the utmost care. Finally the piece is given a final polish and inspection.
