Recently I went to fix my silver necklace at the shop where I bought it in Singapadu village. That time, January 2010 I bought a set of necklace with small pendant formed of butterfly and flowers formed earrings. All are with turquoise gemstone on the center. The story isn’t just about the price but also why I bought it. Anyway, even though the shop keeper gave me 50% discount because I am Indonesian tourist, the price was way high compare with price of silver at Ubud Market. That time the price of that set of accessories equally 5 grams of gold. Even though it have life time guaranty sometimes I feel stupid and what was on my mind makes me want to bought it ?
When I entered that shop, my memory took me back to that time. It should be a trip for two. And it was 8th anniversary trip and my husband was refused to go. It was crucial time of my marriage. The plane ticket already bought so I didn’t want to waste it. I made that time to regain myself. I took a tour to Ubud and the driver took me and other girl from Australia to this shop. During my marriage I never bought expensive accessories and those turquoise stones meaning was interested me. Turquoise can help one receive higher guidance and direction, as well as live life with more joy and happiness. The calming and uplifting colour of turquoise can bring peace and higher energy to any relationship. So I was hoping that this set of accessories can bring peace in my marriage.
What happened was, I found peace in Bali and peace in my heart to accept whatever will happen on my marriage. I returned to Jakarta with a new feeling of peace in my heart. But at in the end I filed a divorced and after that I am starting having a new life here in Bali. I am not sure if turquoise had influenced my decision or not. After more than a year I wear the necklace again. As I told this story to a friend, I told her that one of the lesson of this story is; Leave your wallet at home when you are going somewhere when you are depress, stress or fragile.
