THE QUEEN I
By Benedicta Awere-Malik
Having started creating jewelry at a young age in her native Southern Nigeria, self-taught artist Benedicta Awere-Malik has created the Queen Necklace to celebrate one of her favorite minerals… Turquoise. The birthstone of December and a powerful protective gemstone, turquoise is believed to calm your anxieties and create emotional balance in your life. It’s one of the few gemstones to be worn by queens, kings and common citizens alike and is a sacred stone to the Native people of both North America and Eastern Asia. Western cultures have also cherished this gem which was once considered a love talisman in England, Germany and Russia.
This Turquoise is set in 14K gold fill bezel and featured on our 18” 14k fill shimmer chain. The pendent measures approx. 1.75"
