The Turquoise Collection by Rebel Designs
Posted on June 15 2015
For thousands of years, Turquoise has spanned all cultures, prized as a symbol of wisdom, nobility and the power of immortality. [Eason, 239] A talisman used by kings and warriors for its protection and healing abilities.
The name Turquoise is derived from the French, pierre turquoise, meaning “Turkish stone,” because the trade routes that brought Turquoise to Europe from the mines in central Asia went through Turkey, and Venetian merchants often purchased the stone in Turkish bazaars. [Simmons, 4]
The use of Turquoise in jewelry can be traced as far back as ancient Egypt, and continues through out the world today. The Turquoise Collection by Rebel Designs is a modern take on a centuries old tradition. Personally hand selected pieces for Kewel that stand out on their own and yet compliment each other effortlessly. As always true to Rebel Designs style each piece is crafted from the highest quality stones and mixed beautifully with artisan leather and patina brass metal. Each piece is designed and handcrafted in New York City.
