Two strands of raw turquoise nuggets are entwined by three antique copper flat rope chains finished with vintage findings. This statement piece is handmade in collaboration with Great Dame in Athens, GA.
Turquoise has been revered since ancient times as a symbol of great wealth, wisdom and protection and has a long history of use by kings, shamans and warriors. The name of this blue-green mineral is derived from French, meaning “Turkish stone”. Associated with the fifth/throat chakra, this necklace rests perfectly at the collar bone to activate clear communication.
