Antique Turquoise Necklace
This beautiful Tibetan turquoise necklace comes from a Tibetan nomad jeweler named Tashi. He had a lovely shop called Three Sisters up Bhagsu Road in McLeod Ganj, Dharamsala, India. Tibetans refer to turquoise as the ‘Sky Stone’, brought to the surface of the earth from the heavens. It has been used as a token of love between people, protecting both the person giving the gem and the person receiving it. Tibetans believe every turquoise stone to be unique, each one with its own personality, its own look. As such, it is treated as part of the family. It is believed that the gem must be treated with affection and regarded as a sentient being.
Necklace Size: 8 inches long
