Our Earth can offer many different jaw-dropping and eye catching varieties of stones that provide amazing color combination for all kinds of jewelry types. These stones can be found all over the world, originating from many different places and constantly being incorporated into stunning body jewelry pieces. One such stone, for instance, just so happens to be the Turquoise. This particular stone is well known for its remarkable, bright color- the color often associated with the Caribbean Sea or some other body of water.
Turquoise was first found in Europe, and its name stands for Turkish in old French. This is because most of the material was originally from where the name suggests. Iran has actually been mining this beautiful stone for the past 2000 years in a region known as Persia. To the Iranians, Turquoise goes to represent a valued symbol of Heaven on Earth and this is why they used it not only in jewelry but also in a lot of richly decorated ancient architectural projects as well.
Today, Turquoise is not only a stone but also a color- and a color of great beauty it most certainly is. The stone Turquoise itself is also used in numerous different ways- from necklaces to jewelry plugs to finger rings and other amazing body jewelry. With the large diversity of possible body piercings available right now in every society, even belly rings can incorporate Turquoise to enhance the look of the body.
Turquoise jewelry can become an exotic and often a much admired touch of color that people can easily find at local jewelry shops. It is usually not overly expensive and can be a very beautifying addition to anyone’s closet. The shades of this stone can range from very bright and bold to a light gentle tone, and this allows for a lot of different variations and preferences to be satisfied. In any case, Turquoise body jewelry plugs can be a wonderful thing to try to experiment with for anyone who wears ear plugs for stretched ears.
