The Allure of Turquoise as Gemstones for Stunning Engagement Rings

Rings embedded with diamonds will certainly never go out of style, but jewellery pieces seemingly capturing a piece of the blue sky holds a certain appeal. Even ancient people have been allured by turquoise, the sky-blue gemstone that’s rightly dubbed the “gemstone of the people”. Truly, gifting turquoise engagement rings is like gifting your special someone a piece of heaven on earth. Turquoise and the World Turquoise is an opaque mineral and a hydrous phosphate of copper and aluminium. This mineral is often found amongst arid climates, including Iran, China, Egypt, and the American Southwest. The Persians were amongst the first ones to adorn turquoise, believing that this gem wards off unnatural death. In fact, turquoise has been embedded not only on jewellery pieces, but also on daggers, sabres, and bridles for horses, believing that those who wear the gem will never see poverty.

Jewellers in Reading Illustrated History of the House of Bulgari

For more than a century, jewellery from the House of Bulgari have been distinguished for its colour, texture, and romantic appeal. What started as a small jewellery shop in Rome has grown into an esteemed manufacturer of dazzling pieces and haute creations that sent even Hollywood celebrities into a frenzy. As it turns another year older, the House of Bulgari continues to produce the finest pieces of jewellery and timepieces for everyone. Humble Beginnings The marks of craftsmanship that distinguished Bulgari from other jewellery brands are often attributed to its Greek ancestral roots, with the Voulgaris family of silversmiths specialising in the creation of Byzantine-style art pieces. Originating from a small village in the Pindus mountain range, the Voulgaris family were all adept in making different silver crafts, including earrings and belts. This inherent skill was eventually passed to Sotirio, who happened to be an entrepreneur himself.
