Taking its name from the last emperor of the Incas, our Atahuallpa range has at its
heart the fabulous, treasured turquoise of the South Americas. For thousands of
years turquoise was believed to impart good fortune to the wearer, and was held
to be a symbol of prosperity. Associated with numerous myths and superstitions,
it was known as ‘Chal-cui-hui-tal’, or ‘the highest and most valued thing in the
world’. Today it is still one of the most highly prized stones and is traditionally
given as a love token .
