Turquoise Chip Necklace
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in human history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is said to be a stone of protection; strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye. Its unique shade of blue, often blue-green, lends it name to all things of this tranquil hue. The delicate veining or mottled webbing in cream or brown is inherent to the stone and serves to enhance its character. (Source: https://www.crystalvaults.com/crystal-encyclopedia/turquoise)
Turquoise is considered to be a bridge between Heaven/Sky and Earth, grounding us while still remaining open to Spirit. Many Native American cultures believe Turquoise helps to connect the mind to the infinite possibilities of the Universe, and Turquoise is considered sacred in many Chinese cultures as well.

This unique necklace is a simple strand of 4-6mm tumbled turquoise chip beads strung on beading wire, and finished with an unusual silver-plated 'S' clasp.
Measuring approx. 19" / 49.5cm end to end, this necklace is widely considered to be ‘Princess’-length. Princess commonly ranges anywhere from 17 inches to 19 inches. This necklace length is designed to sit right on the collarbone. Because of this strategic length it will fall just below most collar lines. Princess necklaces are very suitable for a button-up blouse, V-neck and scoop necklines. However, it is common to see this length worn with almost any outfits, similar to the choker. It does very well with an added enhancer, such as a pendant. (Source: https://melroso.com/blogs/stylingblog/37198723-the-secret-of-necklace-lengths)
