Known for its eye-catching color and fascinating history, turquoise has recently gone through a popular resurgence in jewelry and fashion, particularly in rings, necklaces, and bracelets. Not only is it a beautiful stone, but it also has a fascinating cultural history and will be sure to add some color and flavor to many of your summer outfits. Read on to find out more about turquoise jewelry and how to style your summer outfits to show off your beautiful and bright blue stones!
The Unique History of Turquoise – One of the oldest known gemstones, the existence of turquoise can be seen throughout the history of many ancient cultures, dating back to 3,200 B.C. The name turquoise is an adaptation of the French term for Turkish stone, “pierre tourques.” However, the stone itself was not limited to this region and can be seen throughout history as culturally significant to many different peoples, from the Indigenous tribes of the Southwestern United States to adornments of the Egyptian pharaohs. Turquoise is seen by many cultures to have mystical properties and is thought to possess energy for healing, good fortune, and protection from evil.
Turquoise and Fashion – Along with summer comes the emergence of beautiful whites, linens, and bright neutral tones. To spice up the crisp and clean texture of many summer outfits, adding a dash of eye-catching color is a great way to keep a breezy summer vibe while upping the overall aesthetic. Next time you’re wearing a simple sundress or some bright earth or neutral tones, try adding in some turquoise to add some pop to your look.
Unique Textured Pieces – Another great way to incorporate turquoise into your wardrobe is by using it to highlight some contrasting patterns and textures. Turquoise stones often come with pieces that have intricate silver designs and textures around the ring or bracelet band. If you’ve got on a bright, sleek outfit, a contrasting textured band with a bright blue stone can often add the perfect amount of texture to your look.
Layering Your Jewelry – When it comes to jewelry, layering has been a recent trend for rings, necklaces, and bracelets. If you love layering as much as we do, then complimenting your turquoise statement piece with some simple sterling silver pieces will achieve the ultimate aesthetic effect. The silver will help the bold blue color of your turquoise stand out and will turn regular summer outfits into fashionable looks.
