My Jewel Box: Turquoise + Yellow Gold Explosion #LoveGold

I like to blame the fact that Turquoise is one of December’s birthstones, as to why I’ve been on a turquoise and yellow gold rampage!  Most month’s have one gemstone, but for whatever reason, December has three?!  Besides turquoise, zircon and tanzanite are also dedicated to the month of December.  I’d like to make turquoise the official birthstone and hopefully my growing collection will help prove why.  While most people associate turquoise with Southwestern jewelry, they are missing out on the beauty of turquoise mixed with yellow gold!  This was often done during the Victorian Era, which applies to my collection of six rings.  Two of which have beautiful engravings on the inside shank, which are near and dear to me!  Here is more information about each one:
