Happy Birthday December Babies!

Rock Road Jewelry

Happy Birthday December babies! It's the month of the Sagittarius and Capricorns. I have one of those in my own home. For this group, the birthstone is a fun and mysterious one; one with a great history and place in different cultures across the planet. That stone is — Turquoise

One of the most ancient gemstones to be found in history, Turquoise dates back to 4000 BC. The stone was also called as "Mefkat" by ancient Egyptians meaning "Joy" and "Delight". It's also frequently seen in Native Indian jewelry because it can be found near Arizona and Nevada. In nature, turquoise is found in serene blue and green colors like these:

Turquoise is a really elegant stone. As a December birthstone, it gives color and pop to brown hues, rusts, grays, and black winterly sweater colors while still being a stone heavily associated with fun boho-style dresses in the summer. Pieces can be worn up for that little pinch of charm or for a perfect day attire while enjoying the sun outdoors.

While our Turquoise designs are made to be versatile, some pieces are made specifically to accompany more elegant outfits. Here are some new pieces and the inspiration behind them. 

And finally, here is an antique silver turquoise piece — Not for Sale — from my personal collection. The exact origin of this piece is unknown but it bears the makings of old middle-eastern designs. This piece has small turquoise stones with coral complimenting the blue and a colored glass center.

And here is a new turquoise earring — Not for Sale — from my personal collection. This earring is made to look old. This piece has beautiful turquoise with cultured pearls in the middle.
