Five centuries ago, gems this color were almost as valuable to the Aztecs of Mexico as gold is to us today. Their necklaces, crowns and artifacts were decorated with mosaics of the exquisite blue-green stones they believed represented the skies and the waters of Earth. It was prized by kings and high priests, used in their costumes to signify wealth and power, and was even given as an offering to hundreds of Aztec gods.
The unique color is still prized around the world, and our new Mar Azul Necklace delivers those vibrant blue-green hues to your ensembles. The Mar Azul holds 14 polished and faceted cabochons that capture the ancient colors of the sea and sand. The 18" necklace and clasp are finished with gleaming yellow gold. Be bold. Embrace the vivid color and let loose your inner Aztec goddess.
