This one of a kind bracelet is an homage to natural wonder. We are taken to another place, another time, to the Persian Empire and bazaars along the Silk Road, where the Turquoise gemstone has been mined since 4,000 BCE. These stones are kaleidoscopic. Mineral inclusions in these Persian Turquoise beads create the complexity of their body; colors trailing across their finely polished surface enchants us. A timeless symbol of prosperity, these rounded turquoise beads have been hand spun on 18K gold wire to showcase the natural beauty of the stone. The beads range from 5/8” to 3/8” in length and are roughly 3/8” across. 70 carats of rounded bright turquoise beads, speckled with inclusions of metallic and matte earth tones, are linked by hand on recycled 18K gold wire, and are finished with a handmade hook and eye closure with a figure eight lock and safety chain.
