Vintage Tibetan Turquoise Necklace
Turquoise is the stone that Egyptians tried to recreate. The First Nation tribes of North America hang turquoise in doorways to ward off evil, and make beautiful jewelry with it in order to have it with them always. This necklace is from Tibet where they believe the stone to be from the skies and to have spiritual powers. The Tibetans also believe 13 to be an auspicious and holy number, and the number 3 is also holy as it represents the three buddhas. You will find 13 beautiful pieces of turquoise along with three large silver beads in this 14-inch necklace.
