|The color of the gods Bold blue treasure, worthy of the Aztec Empire, yours exclusively from Stauer! The color turquoise was more than just holy to the ancient Aztecs. Because theres no other color like it, the beautiful blue-green was so sacred that no mortal was allowed to wear it. Turquoise was reserved exclusively for the deities the Aztecs worshiped, like Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent god, and magnificent turquoise shrines were constructed in the deities honor. In fact, if you got too close to turquoise during this era, it probably meant you were in a spot of trouble. Fortunately for the fashion-conscious, things have changed in the last 2,000 years and turquoise jewelry is now permissible for mortals. Unfortunately, the fabled gem still commands premium prices, putting big, bold statement pieces out of reach. Thats where Stauer comes to the rescue… Our Azteca Collection delivers the spectacular look and beautiful color for an unbelievable price. You can literally wear the jewelry of the gods without sweating the consequences… or cost. The Azteca Complete Set features a strand of iconic blue-green ovals, polished smooth and separated by hand-twisted links and smaller beads. The 20″ Azteca delivers impressive weight with each piece displaying unique geological patterns and veining. The Complete Set includes the necklace with the massive Azteca Pendant, the matching bracelet and the stylish earrings. With this collection, you have an ensemble that would have ancient civilizations building temples in your honor!
