Tears of joy
Legend has it that joyful Navajo people helped form the very first turquoise gemstones. A long, dry summer in the Southwest was threatening to ruin the harvest, so when the rains finally came, the people danced in the deluge and cried tears of joy. Those happy tears mixed with the welcome raindrops and then seeped into Mother Earth, where turquoise began to form.
This legend is based in science. The beautiful blue–green of turquoise really is the result of various, mineral-rich water sources permeating rocks and then slowly hardening into glorious veins of raw gemstone. So it’s entirely possible that each turquoise stone contains genuine tears of happiness. The Rain Dance Turquoise Collection showcases the very best this exalted blue-green beauty has to offer.
American born turquoise from Arizona glows even bluer from antiquedfinished settings. Just as the Native Americans celebrated those raindrops, we love to celebrate price-drops. And so we’re offering the Rain Dance Turquoise Earrings for an incredible price.
