Turquoise has tremendous look when paired with yellow gold, it almost seems to glow, for this reason Gold and Turquoise are made for each other. Both blue and green Turquoise look wonderful in Gold and Turquoise jewelry.

In the past it would not be common to see many people other than royalty and affluent people covered in Turquoise. Turquoise has always been very rare as most of what is mined is too soft and not completely formed. This leaves a small percentage of the Turquoise that is gem grade and a small portion that is "high-grade".

Today, the low grade, unusable Turquoise can be stabilized with a resin and used. This allows for common people to wear Turquoise. This stabilized material along with lower grades of Turquoise were the first to be used in mainstream Sterling Silver jewelry. Today, all grades of Turquoise are used in Silver Jewelry. The very best Turquoise is reserved for Gold and Turquoise Jewelry made by the greatest craftsmen.
