Carved Iranian Turquoise Ring
This unique and striking gemstone ring is set with vibrant blue turquoise from Iran and hand carved with a floral design.
The word turquoise dates back to the 17th Century, when trading routes brought turquoise from Persia through the Middle East towards Europe. The traders passed through Turkey, known as 'Turquie' in French, and the material was named 'Turquies' by locals.
Iran has been an important source of turquoise for at least 2000 years. You may have noticed its use in Iranian architecture, where the blue turquoise was used to cover the domes of palaces and mosques because its intense blue colour was also a symbol of heaven on earth.
