Turquoise, the colour of December
The three birthstones of December are equally appealing. From turquoise, which has been coveted by societies across the world since ancient times (King Tut's burial mask was famously adorned in turquoise stones,) to zircon, the Earth's oldest and one of its most geologically interesting minerals, and tanzanite, which got its name (for Tanzania, where the stones were originally discovered) from Tiffany & Co. when the famed jeweller became the first large-scale distributor of the stone in 1968.
Turquoise is believed to bring contentment, luck and friendship into the wearer’s life. Here are just some of our favourite pieces infused with a dash of turquoise colour that represents December’s birthstone, but would make an incredible gift any month.
