Vintage Sterling Silver Native American Coral & Turquoise Earrings Cuff Bracelet
The world has had a fascination for turquoise for over 7000 years. The oldest known example of any jewelry was a carved turquoise and gold bracelet found on the mummy of an Egyptian queen. In the American Southwest, Native Americans have mined turquoise since prehistoric times. Many legends surround turquoise, it is believed to bring good fortune and health. While turquoise was once used as currency in the American Southwest, it has been treasured as an adornment throughout the centuries worldwide. The evolution of turquoise jewelry from its appeal as southwestern, Native American or tourist jewelry, to one of the most coveted gems set in designer jewelry worldwide. Coveted, that is, only if you are talking about true, genuine turquoise. And so our turquoise love story continues. While the demand for turquoise has increased dramatically, the supply of genuine turquoise is limited. Coral has been valued and used for jewelry fabrication and decoration since the earliest history of man. It was used as a form of currency along with amber by Paleolithic man and pieces of Mediterranean coral have been found in the Neolithic city of Catal Huyuk, Central Anatolia that date to 8,000 years BCE. In ancient Egypt coral jewels were popular during the times of Ptolemy, over 2000 years ago. Coral was traded across the ancient and modern world via established trade routes to Italy, where the major workshops were located, and then to Central Europe, Siberia and the Celtic countries, while other types of coral traveled from the Indian Ocean across Asia to Tibet and Mongolia. The Victorians adored coral, carving it into delicate roses and cameos and since the late 1800’s, American Indians have incorporated red coral into many of their jewelry designs. Today coral is equally prized in jewelry making, while live corals and products such as coral rock have become increasingly popular in the marine aquarium trade.
