Turquoise is one the world’s most beautiful stones, beloved for its gorgeous color. That blissful blue color has been forever captured in The Turchese il Fiore Collection.
From their workshop in picturesque Torre del Greco on the edge of the Vesuvio mountains near Naples, our Raffinato artisans have given this sacred stone new life. Turquoise is broken down and reformed into a pliable substance called “Pasta di Turchese.” They use this “turquoise pasta” to form flawless beads in a color that mirrors the flawless ‘robin’s egg blue’ color of the highly sought-after Sleeping Beauty turquoise from Arizona.
No machine did this, the Turchese il Fiore Collection is the result of true craftsmanship done by hand, and done perfectly.
