What is a cabochon stone?
A cabochon (/ˈkæbəˌʃɒn/, from Middle French caboche "head") is a gemstone which has been shaped and polished as opposed to being faceted. The resulting form is usually a convex (rounded) obverse with a flat reverse. Cabochon was the default method of preparing gemstones before gemstone cutting was developed and you'll find cabochons throughout the collections.

Where do you find Sleeping Beauty Turquoise?
The Sleeping Beauty turquoise mine in Globe, Arizona was named after the mountain range where it is located, which from a distance is said to resemble a sleeping woman with her arms crossed. It is often used by Zuni Pueblo silversmiths in petite point, needlepoint, and inlay jewelry because of its natural hardness and consistent color.

Sleeping Beauty herself would love these 2.5" long asymmetrical earrings. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is popular as a gemstone of dream and hope, and is believed to have power to improve communication skills. Lapis is one of the most sought after stones in use since man's history began. Its deep, celestial blue remains the symbol of royalty and honor, gods and power, spirit and vision. And White topaz symbolizes hope, love and happiness.
