These Persian Turquoise beads lure us into closer inspection with their dynamic deep blues, meandering greens, and inclusions of metallic earth tones. Fine and round, they are like tiny droplets of dew, reflecting the whole world with the minerals strewn across their enigmatic blue. Mined in Persia since 4,000 BCE, turquoise, known as the sky stone, has a long history of inspiring the imagination. Hand spun onto recycled 18K gold wire, one after the other, 20 carats of 6-7mm rondelle beads link together, making for a classic turquoise bead bracelet. Every bead is held between with two 18K gold caps, keeping the rhythm of this chain, and finished with a handmade hook and eye closure with a figure eight lock and safety chain measuring a total length of 7.5 inches.
