Beauty of Turquoise Jewellery

When it comes to fine crystal jewellery, turquoise jewellery is always a fantastic choice. Turquoise is a beautiful stone that has been worked into amulets and jewellery for thousands of years. It is found in many different parts of the world and its wonderful green and blue colour has made a favourite of civilizations as far apart as the ancient Chinese and Native Americans.

We love the bright colours of turquoise jewellery. There is something about the richness and brightness of this crystal that look simply stunning. Turquoise jewellery makes a wonderful gift and we at Mysticcollections have a great choice of turquoise jewellery.

Healing Power of Turquoise

Different cultures have ascribed differing powers to turquoise as a healing stone, but there are some main attributes that they all agree on. Turquoise is believed to protect from both physical and spiritual harm and it has historically been carved into amulets against sorcery. In modern crystal healing, turquoise is still used for protection, as well as its calm, balancing energy. It is believed to stabilize mood swings and bring relief to people who are exhausted or overworked.

Turquoise pendants are among some of our most popular pieces of jewellery. Pendants really show off the beauty of crystals and they put the gemstone centre stage in your look. Below are some of our favourite turquoise pieces, that can be worn for both special and everyday occasions.

Kaasumalai:

An absolutely antique and vintage find that goes with anything in your wardrobe. This coin jewellery is quite popular in southern India and most of the brides would have atleast one in this kind.

 

How to wear it? The first one is rather a contemporary version of the kasumalai. Team it with any long haarams or wear it alone.

The long version is the authentic and the classic style. Much suited for the matured and elderly women.
