Rings embedded with diamonds will certainly never go out of style, but jewellery pieces seemingly capturing a piece of the blue sky holds a certain appeal. Even ancient people have been allured by turquoise, the sky-blue gemstone that’s rightly dubbed the “gemstone of the people”. Truly, gifting turquoise engagement rings is like gifting your special someone a piece of heaven on earth.
Turquoise and the World
Turquoise is an opaque mineral and a hydrous phosphate of copper and aluminium. This mineral is often found amongst arid climates, including Iran, China, Egypt, and the American Southwest. The Persians were amongst the first ones to adorn turquoise, believing that this gem wards off unnatural death. In fact, turquoise has been embedded not only on jewellery pieces, but also on daggers, sabres, and bridles for horses, believing that those who wear the gem will never see poverty.
