In the world of crystal healing, Turquoise is a stone of communication. Healers recommend it for people who have a fear of public speaking: they believe it has the ability to make a speaker more eloquent, loving, creative, and honest. It also improves the mental state overall by increasing serenity, creativity, empathy, positive thinking, sensitivity, intuition, happiness wisdom, all of which result in a calmer state of mind that leads to greater self-realization. Turquoise a stone of friendship. It opens up the connections between people and allows love to flow, strengthening the human bond, convictions, courage, and personal power.
Cleaners and turquoise generally don't mix. Turquoise is very susceptible to damage and discoloration. Even mild dishwashing detergent can damage the stone. Stick to using a damp rag.
The Ashok Collection
Jewelry making is an evolving art form, and the beauty of Indian charms lies in the uniqueness of their design and the workmanship involved in creating the intricate pieces. There are items to adorn almost every part of the body, from the hair to the toe, and also for fulfilling religious needs. Not only are human beings are decorated with jewelry, but some pieces are specially crafted for Gods, Goddesses, and even for ceremonial animals such as elephants, cows, and horses. The art of jewelry has been patronized by the royal class of India since ancient times when the right to own the most magnificent jewels even led to battles. The availability of such a wide variety of jewelry is mainly down to the regional differences in design, which include the different tastes of local people and their lifestyles. For instance, silver ornaments are especially popular in the states of Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Rajasthan, where traditionally nomadic groups wear bright and weighty ornaments embossed with coins, shells, beads, and metallic mesh which make them distinguishable at first glance. Rajasthani silverware is popular all over the world and original jewels are often decorated with colorful beads as well as tinkling bells that bear a distinctive oxidized appearance. This area remains a global center of silver craftsmanship and hand-cutting of gems, precious stones, semi-precious stones together with the jewels that are made from them. Princesse Décadente brings you the Ashok Collection from Rajasthan - class, royalty, and history all rolled into one.
