Gold might be the It Girl jewelry trend of the moment, but turquoise never goes out of style. The gemstone has a rich history and place in Native American/Western culture in this country, so it’s really only a matter of time before it becomes the next big thing.
Considered a sacred stone by Native Americans, it’s considered to be a master healer, a protective stone, and as a bonus it will grant you wisdom. And if you don’t believe in that, then at least we can all agree that the bright color makes the stone a stunning choice of accessories.
Turquoise is also an incredibly versatile stone, lending itself easily to just about anyone’s style vibe. You can go a little bit more glam when it’s set in gold, or a little more bohemian and Arizona chic with some silver pieces. Maybe you associate turquoise with big, chunky pieces. You’d be right, because there’s a lot of those. But there are plenty of smaller, delicate pieces there are plenty of contemporary pieces to choose from right now.
This chain-link necklace at Nordstrom is a lot of look for the price, and would pop perfectly against a white t-shirt. It’ll dress up jeans but look just as good with a dress. Try something brightly colored if you’re up to colorblocking.
Zoe Chicco’s diamond and turquoise ring is an absolute stunner, and the perfect investment piece if you’re looking for one. Handmade in Los Angeles with 14 karat gold and a tiny sparkling diamond, you can wear it everyday. Banana Republic’s ring set is a more affordable option, but just as wearable and stylish.
A pair of chandelier earrings from Stella + Ruby make turquoise even more glam thanks to rhinestone halos. They would be the perfect statement piece for your next wedding or even just a special date night.
