It is said that “When the skies opened up and rained after a long drought, the tears of the people seeped into the earth, and formed Turquoise” (Native American Legend) The Navajo people truly revered the turquoise stone. It was much more than a semi-precious stone, something to adorn the body with or a good luck charm. It was really considered sacred or blessed.

  1. I was unaware that Turquoise was considered sacred and of the Native American legend about the Turquoise. It truly is a beautiful semi-precious stone! I especially loved the Dragonfly Pendant and the Infinity love Heart necklace. They are exquisite pieces but when I clicked the Dragonfly it took me to a golden one and didn’t give me the option of the Turquoise.

    1. Thank you so much for your comments, we really appreciate it. Thank you also for letting us know that the link for the DRAGONFLY PENDANT was not correct. We have added the proper link now.

      Yes, we agree that this jewelry is very beautiful and timeless, quite exquisite. The history is very interesting, including the spiritual attributes that are attributed to these gemstones.

  2. precious mineral, it was a symbol that the Navajo people considered sacred.

    Possibly the most significant legend of the stone is that of the Navajo hero twins, who in their efforts to destroy a wicked witch, found themselves at a crossroads. They did not know which way to go. Then they saw a beautiful young woman with a turquoise in her hand. They asked her which way they should go and she told them, “Go to the right”. So they went

    1. Hello Moneer, thank you for your comments. Yes, I too found the history of the Navajo turquoise very interesting. I love the turquoise & silver jewelry personally that they have been crafting for decades.

      There definitely was a spiritual nature attached to this gem as you have pointed out that most people are unaware of. 

  3. My wife lost her wedding band a little while ago while we were on a trip and she has been gutted about it ever since. I have been looking for a replacement and given that she is in December born the wedding band looks like a really good option. I like the symbolism and spiritual connection with the Navajo as her family originates from a different group of first peoples called the Arawaks. I like also the idea of the uniqueness of the design and will certainly be looking more closely at the range with an intention to purchase. Thank you.

    1. Thank you so much for your comments. I am so sorry that your wife lost her wedding band, so unfortunate. In fact, the day my wife and I were to travel back to Canada from Manila in the Philippines, she could not find her wedding band. We searched and searched . thought for sure it was gone. We were in a hurry to catch our plane and had to travel to the airport. We had all but given up when someone in her family happened to look in an old change purse of my wifes only to know it was there, what a blessing. I have not heard of your wifes people, the ARAWAKS, very interesting indeed. I too love the traditions of the Navajo and the other groups in the Arizona & New Mexico areas. I’m sure that your wife would love to receive her new band in turquoise. All the best.
