Turquoise

We hand cut our turquoise for each Honey & Goldies piece. Our turquoise is sourced dominantly from Nevada mines, with the other 10% mainly from Arizona. Because each cabochon is hand cut from natural stone, every piece will vary in color and matrix, leaving them beautifully unique and one of a kind.

Turquoise rings cannot be resized. Please contact us directly for any sizing questions.

We are not responsible for cracked or broken stones after 3 days of receiving your jewel (please see our return policy).

Jewelry Care

We want you to keep your jewel in the best shape possible. Please remember many stones such as Opal and Turquoise require care. While diamonds are much harder, they can still be fractured by hard impact. Handle your jewels carefully, and avoid regular soaking of softer stones in water. Clean briefly in warm, sudsy water, and dry with a soft cloth. Avoid commercial jewelry cleansers.

Opal care-

  • Opals are delicate but still suitable for jewelry with proper care-Clean only with warm, soapy water. Choose a mild detergent.Avoid heat from intense light. Sudden heat or temperature change can cause "crazing," cracking, and color change/loss.

  • Avoiding wearing in harsh environments and during outdoor activities such as gardening.

  • Avoid chemicals including bleach and household cleaners, hairsprays, lotions, etc. These can cause cracking or color change/loss.

  • Opal stones will crack or break on impact if hit with force. Avoid striking the stone.

  • If storing for a long period of time, place Opal in a sealed plastic bag with a lightly damp piece of cotton to avoid dehydration. Do not place cotton directly on the Opal.

  • Follow the "last on, first off" rule.

  • Do not sleep with your Opal jewelry on.
