Turkish jewellery is known for being ornate, colourful and decorated with diamonds, turquoise and emeralds.
The designs are rich with culture and history and many reflect what the Sultans would have adorned themselves with centuries ago.
Many pieces include a blue eye which is believed to safeguard against evil sprits, but also to bring luck, good health and success.
I was recently sent this beautiful necklace from Turkey which features the eye design hanging on a fine, gold chain. When I wear the necklace I believe that it not only looks divine but feel it keeps me safe from harm, even if it is just superstition!
