Why is the Sleeping Beauty Turquoise almost free of matrix or markings in the stone?
For Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, we closely monitor the range of blue color and the level of mottling, matrix and markings we will accept. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise can have all of these markings in the stone, but QVC currently accepts only Sleeping Beauty Turquoise that is free of markings.

What is matrix?
Turquoise deposits usually form in iron-rich host rock which tends to create dark brown or tan markings called matrix.

Where is Turquoise mined?
Turquoise is found in only a few places on earth: dry and barren regions where acidic, copper-rich groundwater seeps downward and reacts with minerals that contain phosphorus and aluminum. Some areas that most of the turquoise has been mined: Arizona, Mexico and China. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is from the Sleeping Beauty mine outside Globe, Arizona. The mine got its name because the mountain where it is mined resembles a sleeping woman laying on her back with her arms crossed.

How can we continue to sell Sleeping Beauty Turquoise if the mine is closed?
QVC suppliers have acquired large quantities of rough turquoise when they learned the mine was closing. We have been using these lots of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise for our jewelry.

The Sleeping Beauty mine is currently closed and, at this time, there is no new production of the Sleeping Beauty stones.

J158150 - Affinity Diamond 1/7 ct tw Round Turquoise Ring, Sterling 4.9 5 14 14
Beautiful Ring! Absolutely love this ring. The diamonds are small but beautiful. Oh and that gorgeous turquoise is breathtaking. Comfortable & true to size. What a beauty! 09-19-12
Love it! Just got this today. Much prettier than the picture. Also larger than it appears in the picture. Great with jeans. Lovely with other silver items. Well worth the price. It may never come off my finger. 05-03-12
Got it Love it!!!! Love this very pretty, white diamonds, love, love!!! 05-01-12
Very Pretty & Unique I like the juxtaposition of the dainty diamonds and scrollwork contrasted with the bolder turquoise. Though neither the diamond nor turquoise offer much presence, I really like this ring and think it is well worth the price paid. Not too bold, this ring does show up and makes a statement. 03-05-12
Turqoise beauty I order this ring, and when I got it I was pleasantly surprise that is very pretty and good solid shiny sterling silver. Design is well, looks art deco period with the migraining and the swirl design. The diamonds are micro- tiny throughout the design, not huge sparkle, a slight twinkle when a light hits it. Love it. The blue stone is small, but it is a true sleeping beauty color of turquoise with no metric at all. Happy with this piece. 02-17-12
Stunning Ring!! Great Value!! This is a beautifully crafted piece with a gorgeous stone! It has a nice presence and is sooooo comfortable! I wear it a lot, and it goes with everything! I get lots of compliments every time I wear it! And, I can't believe the price I paid for this beauty! 01-31-12

More Than I expected Got this the other day - it is a Valentines day gift for my Mom. The turquoise appears to be Sleeping Beauty - it is that beautiful. The diamonds, while small, are very noticable. What a great ring at an even greater price. Nice to have something suprise you with its beauty when you open the box. 01-16-12
Affinity Affordable! What a beautiful ring. Love the fabulous color of the turquoise and the luster of the diamonds. Several big reasons why I like Affinity . . it's affordable, it's beautiful and they always have easy pay to accommodate my budget and my taste for this fine jewelry collection. This is another big winner Affinity! Hands down . . you will not be disappointed with this purchase. Would recommend this to anyone, especially if you adore beautiful jewelry <3 01-15-12
GREAT RING!!!!! I really like this ring...It is prettier in person than on tv and the computer....Have gotten many complements as well on it and it is a very comfortable ring to wear...Hope to enjoy it for many years to come... 12-31-11
Stunning! I purchased this for my daughter for Christmas and she absolutely loves it. It looks stunning on her finger. The price is ridiculous and with the easy pay you can't beat it. Don't hesitate! 12-28-11
Beautiful I snuck a peek at this - a Christmas present from my husband - and I was so happy. The ring is very substantial, but the delicate figiree work makes is very wearable and gives it a light feeling. The diamonds are very small, but shine brightly. It came boxed but also enclosed in a velvet pouch that is very elegant. I love this ring and I know I'll still be just as excited when I open it Christmas morning! 10-14-11
