Wickedest Town in the West Reveals Turquoise Riches!
My whole life I’d heard about “The Wickedest Town in the West,” but last year I finally had the chance to pay a visit. Better known as Jerome, Arizona, this sleepy little ghost town was once home to many lucrative copper mines. And with so many miners needing diversion, the town eventually hosted 37 bars, 13 bordellos and four churches, which the locals felt was the correct ratio. Sidling up to a seat at Jerome’s main saloon, I struck up a conversation with an old timer in a 10-gallon hat who seemed affixed to his bar stool. Wyatt told me what the place used to be like. Miners and cowboys. Gamblers and women of the night. On Sundays there was a moratorium on dueling. He also told me about his private line on a cache of Arizona turquoise, which a friend had inherited from his father.
That friend gave him a steal of a deal on “the diamond of the desert” and inspired our Sacred Stone Turquoise Earring captures the raw beauty of the Southwest desert. Starring 2-1/2 total carats of Arizona turquoise that’s been gently enhanced to bring out its best colors, this collection features an oxidized silver finish that adds to its rustic charm.
Make sure to act fast on this deal. Less than 5% of turquoise mined worldwide is of gem-worthy quality, and many Southwest mines have run dry and closed. Get the Sacred Stone Turquoise Collection while supplies last! — Jack B.
