This type of turquoise is often called Persian turquoise, a generic name because it probably did not come from Persia. It is a beautiful blue colored turquoise with no matrix at all, and in New Mexico, the Cerrillos mines just south of Santa Fe were also found to have a similar type of turquoise. It is interesting to know that the Cerrillos turquoise was used by Tiffany at the turn of the last century and that a parure of turquoise and diamonds were in a wedding gift from King George VI to Elizabeth.
The turquoise used in Victorian jewelry has an interesting history, and if you would enjoy reading more about it, click HERE. The last photo shows other examples of the Victorian turquoise rings, for sale elsewhere on this site.
