Questions you might have regarding Turquoise:

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.

Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Leaf Design Sterling Bangle 4.4 5 18 18
Spectacular I ordered this bracelet & the matching ring. The silver gleams white. The Sleeping Beauty Turquois is heavenly. I wish there were a matching lariat type necklace & leaf / vine styled matching earing. I would purchase those in a heartbeat! Please e-mail me if you'd ever consider turning this style into a suite of jewelry. 03-20-15
sleek and simple goes beautifully with all of my sleeping beauty and silver jewelry! comfortable and stylish. too loose initially, but i carefully pushed each end of the bangle to fit me! 02-05-15
PLEASE READ MY REVIEW ! Hi' I can't believe my eyes on the majority of the reviews on this bracelet. My First time buying a Sleeping Beauty product. Here is my opinion on this dainty little bracelet. I too bought the small size, and once I put it on, yes, it was loose on me too! I just gave it a couple soft squeezes and it fit without showing any stress on the stones. dah 01-29-15
Lovely Bracelet This is a beautiful bracelet. Although the stones are small, they are a very pretty color. The leaf design is lovely. I purchased the matching ring, but the stones are a few shades darker. 01-28-15
Beautiful I loved this beautiful bracelet but wasn't able to keep it because it didn't fit. Bring it back with a hinge and it'll be a keeper for sure! 01-17-15
Not true sleeping beauty turquoise color I love the style of this bracelet. It fits my wrist great. It is a wonderful weight. But and its a big but the stones are not a true sleeping beauty blue it is a green/blue and not that beautiful robin eggs blue I am used too. None of the sleeping beauty turquoise stones I bought on gem day were the true sleeping beauty blue. I realize there are variations but this does not match any of my other older sleeping beauty turquoise 01-15-15
Small was not small enough My wrists are very small even the small was too large. 09-17-14
wanted to love I really wanted this bracelet, it looks so nice. somehow it flops on my arm. I ordered the small as I have a 6 inch wrist. it came down onto my hand and then rode down my arm 6 or so inches. would not stay in place. I can remember many years ago when I wore a cuff bracelet it would stay in place. I ordered a different bracelet in the hopes that it will fit as it should. we'll see. it gets mighty expensive returning these pieces. 09-04-14
Beautiful but too small for my wrist I bought small size but my wrists are small and it felt awkward/too big on my wrist. I truly love design of this. I ordered the ring that matches and I enjoy that piece. Wish they did necklace and earrings in this design. 08-26-14
Feminen The Sleeping Beauty is spot on and the silver the perfect vehicle!!! The bracelet fits well and compliments the other Sleeping Beauty I have. Not necessarily a fan of other turquoise but Sleeping Beauty has caught my eye!! 08-24-14
Lovely Bracelet! I have two Sleeping Beauty Bracelets. This one and a Carolyn Pollack bracelet. When I went on Wait List for this, I was hesitant. Then it arrived at my door. I am very happy that I was able to get it. The turquoise presence goes across the entire top of my wrist. It's nice to be able to look down on the bracelet. It's sort of soothing to me! I like the color of this turquoise...They are a little lighter blue in color. I am not in favor of the more vivid blue color. The Sleeping Beauty shows up lighter on the television screen. When it arrives to me, it's darker in color, and a little disappointment. Not so with this bracelet! Only drawback, is that it was imported. Oh, I wear a small, 6 3/4" wrist, and it fit perfectly. 08-17-14
Delicate and Graceful The title says it all, delicate and graceful. Yes, the stones are small but in this design they work just fine. Bought similar earrings and pendant for a beautiful set. Love the color and style...perfect for a modern woman who doesn't want a heavy turquoise set or Native American styling. Also, I have a large wrist and this bracelet fits well and doesn't turn at all. 08-14-14
