Turquoise Jewelry from Around the World

I try to buy beads and jewelry wherever I travel, and turquoise one of my favourites.

Two necklaces of Chinese turquoise, sponge coral and sterling silver inspired by the Tibetan gau boxes I picked up in Bangkok. Tibet is one place that values the greener turquoises over the blue.Necklace with Tibetan gau box with Chinese turquoise, coral and sterling silver Close-up of one of the Gau Boxes, designed to hold a prayer or small talisman.Tibetan gau box with Chinese turquoise, coral and sterling silver detail I also picked up a lot of Thai hill tribe silver while shopping in Bangkok like these silver butterflies and flower pendant.
