Turquoise

Let’s face it, people with December birthdays often draw a short straw. We hear way too many stories about people getting joint birthday and Christmas gifts and so we feel very strongly that our December birthday babies need to be really spoiled. So, it really is fitting that turquoise is the December birthstone. This ancient precious stone was one of the first gemstones to be mined as far back as 6000 BC. The enchanting sea-green turquoise represents wisdom, luck, happiness, hope and enduring love.

Turquoise is one stone that’s enjoyed cultural significance all across the world, from Ancient Egypt to the Apache tribes of the Southwestern USA. It’s also one gemstone that’s very popular with men as well as women. As a result, turquoise jewellery ranges from traditional to very modern, with brands like Najo featuring turquoise in rings, pendants and earrings. As such a joyful coloured stone, it also makes a perfect gift for our spontaneous and fun Sagittarius friends. This silver turquoise cuff bangle or turquoise hook earrings would definitely put you in the good books!
