Tibetan Turquoise has been used as a symbol of love between individuals and is believed to protect both the giver and the recipient of the gift. In their early years, Tibetan children are always given a piece of Tibetan Turquoise Jewelry because it is thought to serve as a guardian and prevent them from falling. The fear of falling would be a severe problem in some of these settlements since they are located high in the mountains. The value of the gem in this culture is such that people would repeatedly “upgrade” their turquoise talisman with bigger and finer pieces throughout their lifetimes. Looking for a larger and cleaner piece may become a lifelong endeavor.
