The gemstone  Turquoise  has  been  highly prized since Egyptian times and its name means 'Turkish Stone' as it was imported to Europe  via Turkey. The colour of this historic gemstone ranges  from  a  greenish  blue  to  a  beautiful, striking sky blue and is one of several instances  where the name of a colour is derived from the name of a gemstone.

It is interesting to note that in order for it to be deemed Turquoise  it  has  to  be  of  the  highest quality. When Turquoise is mined it can often  have traces of chrome or iron set deep within it  and it is these elements which give the gemstone its unique colour.

As the gem is opaque, it is rarely faceted and is  usually cabochon cut or made into beads. 

Turquoise  is  said  to  have  been  mined  more  than 6000 years ago in Sinai. In Persian times  people would adorn themselves with Turquoise,  usually around the neck or on the wrist, as it was  believed the stone would prevent fatalities.

It  has  long  been  thought  to  be  a  holystone  bringing  the  wearer  good  fortune  and  a  prosperous life: even today Turquoise is thought  to  clear  the  mind  and  cheer  people  up.  Its  colourful blues denote a sense of wellbeing and  spiritual harmony.  Turquoise often gets given  as a gift to a loved one or dear friend and as  it is one of the birthstones for December, it  makes an ideal Christmas present!

November birthstone - the Topaz

Our stone of the month is Topaz, a lustrous stone that stands as the birth stone for November.

Fun fact: there is no set colour for this gem stone. Topaz comes in a variety of shades and contrasting colours such as: yellow, brown, honey, green, pink and more commonly, cool aqua blues. The variety of shades the Topaz stone possesses makes it a really interesting stone to invest in. Plus, it makes that November birthday present for the one you love a whole lot easier to buy, because the colour isn't limited! 

It is said that the ancient Egyptians and Romans associated the Topaz stone with the sun. They believed God made the sun - a source of protecting and healing qualities and therefore associated these qualities with this unique stone. It is also believed that the Topaz stone brings luck and enchantment, making it a perfect gift for the one you love.

October Opal's - The perfect gift

Opal's are our beautiful stone of the month; representing the birth stone for October.  The name 'Opal' derives from from the Latin “Opalus” and the Greek “Opallios”, meaning 'precious stone'. This milky, multicoloured and eyecatching stone acts as a traditional and timeless stone, worn by women and men of all ages.

One thing you probably didn't know about this stone is that the finest family of Opal contains every colour of the rainbow. This stone also represents hope and innocence, which are connotations of the pure milky white base colour the stones are usually made up of. The term 'Opal' also depicts 'changing of colour', making it a really unique stone to possess because no two are the same!

Queen Victoria’s favorite gemstone was Opal! She had sapphires, rubies and diamonds from all over the British empire but fell in love with the intoxicating colours of Opals, and we hope you do too!

Shop our Opal collection here to explore our different styles and colours of this classic stone.
