Description
Inspired by the flowering of Medieval artistry, this necklace combines boldly-hued turquoise with matte jasper, recalling the importance of both gemstones during the period. Meaning 'stone of Turkey', turquoise was much prized as a protective talisman during the 14th century, traded to the West from the Ottoman Empire whilst jasper was used in the decoration of ecclesiastical objects. As new trade routes opened, such semi-precious stones became coveted for their perceived talismanic properties and natural beauty.

Made exclusively for Museum Selection.
