Protection + Communication + Luck
Wear turquoise for protection, power, luck, friendship, and communication. Turquoise has a long rich history in many cultures around the world, and was one the first gemstones to be mined and used for talismans and decorative objects and jewelry. Use it for inner and outer strength, protection of body and energy, and for inner and outer beauty. Use it to stimulate the throat chakra to facilitate verbal expression.
Turquoise corresponds to the throat chakra
If you want your jewelry to last, remember the old saying: “Jewelry should be the last thing you put on, and the first thing you remove”.
Keep it clean by keeping it away from chemicals, lotions, perfumes, excessive humidity, and protect from heavy, hard wearing activities such as sports, heavy work, or vigorous exercise. The main culprits that shorten the life of your jewelry are: never taking it off, wearing it while sleeping, wearing it in hot tubs and pools, and while playing sports. Store in an airtight container such as jewelry box or zip lock baggie while not wearing. When storing long term, make sure to clean and dry thoroughly before storing.
GEMSTONE CARE: Turquoise should be cleaned with warm soapy water. It is quite porous, so should be kept from colored jewelry cleaners, and harsh cleaners, as it could soak in coloring and chemicals and change color over time. Care should be taken to keep from chipping this softer gemstone, by removing before working or playing hard.
14kt gold-filled jewelry is made with thick layer of gold (5% by weight) bonded to a high quality metal core of silver, brass, or copper. Although it isn’t solid gold, it essentially functions the same as any 14kt gold jewelry: it wont rub off or turn colors easily. It can be treated and cleaned as you would 14kt gold, and lasts 10-30 years of everyday wear with care. It can be cleaned with warm, soapy water, and a soft brush, then dried with a soft cloth.
A NOTE ABOUT NATURAL GEMSTONES:
Individuality should be celebrated! Expect your natural gemstones to be perfectly imperfect: Unevenness in color or texture or finish is normal and expect to see some internal inclusions, dots, or flecks, that may not be immediately apparent from photos. We strive to provide an accurate description of our jewelry, but variation in color is also normal, and expect to see a slight difference in color from your computer monitor from the real thing.
