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.

Bangles – Beautifully yours!

Bangles form part of the traditional ornamental jewellery of Indian culture from time immemorial. It even dates back to the pre-historic ages, where bangles were made of stone, clay and metal. Gradually it became a work of art and were made out of precious metals like gold and silver. Today, it occupies a vast space in modern ornamental jewellery with a million designs transcending cultural barriers. This fashionable trend has now been passed on to alien cultures. Now, it is as popular in the west, as it is in India. So much so, that there is a vast market in the bangle trade, be it precious or non precious. Ornamental bangles made of precious metals and stones are beyond the reach of the aam admi, hence this has given rise to a market of bangles made of semi-precious metals and stones known as FASHION JEWELLERY. The love for this ornamental jewellery has given rise to various types of bangles.

There are 2 very basic types of bangles: a solid cylinder type and a split cylindrical spring opening/ closing type.

The only distinguishing factor is the material used to make these bangles, they vary from the following:

GLASS BANGLES – These bangles are the most fun and colourful type of bangles that make you look so girly. Glass bangles are nothing like they were so many years ago. They have updated a lot and are super stylish. They’re worn at absolutely every event with the perfect outfit and so many colours to choose from.
