Behind The Stone: The Meaning of Turquoise
Posted: May 04 2017
Body charms, statement earrings, anklets and rings with turquoise detailing have become one of this year’s most popular boho chic trends, but turquoise is more than just a gorgeous, bright blue stone! With a rich history and heritage and various symbolic meaning, Turquoise is an amazing charm stone that will bring a balance to your life.
The Stone of an Independent Woman
Turquoise symbolizes various features and amazing qualities, all which can be related to a fun, independent and confident woman. With its gorgeous, vibrant shade, turquoise represents femininity, but it is also believed to bring spiritual balance to the person wearing it. It’s a stone that captures and spreads calmness, patience and love, so it is the perfect choice if you are looking for something fun yet calming. Even its color, this beautiful, vivid mix of blue and green represents a cheerful and creative vibe.
The discovery of Turquoise can be dated all the way back to 3200 BC, when it was first mined by Egyptians. Turquoise has always been a royal stone amongst different cultures – it can be found on various Egyptian pharaoh tombs and death masks, but it had an important part in both Aztec ad Native American cultures as well, representing love, power and protection (which explain why it was used on death masks and charms). Besides being a symbol of luck, it also had a strong spiritual and religious meaning. While it was known as a powerful stone that could bring to the dead in afterlife, it was also worn by priests and leaders, representing power and spiritual balance.
Throughout the decades, turquoise remained a well-known, precious stone, associated with bringing energy and balance to the wearer’s life, and because of its unique color, it is also one of the most chic jewelry pieces at the moment. Whether mixed with gold, bronze or silver, Turquoise is a great way to create an interesting, boho look with that unique “happy vibe”.
