A Flattering Dose of Summer Blues.
There’s almost nothing that says summer better than turquoise jewelry. The beautiful color and the stone are showing up in high end designer RTW and accessory collections. The precious element, long used as a talisman and amulet by ancient cultures who valued its healing qualities, has been fashionable throughout the ages.
Turquoise, from blue green to green is on the fashion fast track. European and American designers, such as Antonio Marras and Haider Ackermann, are fascinated with the color and recognize its flattering and refreshing power. On the runway, they showed the color paired with other tonal blues such as aqua and mint or married it with another natural color palette, green. This time around, the trend to turquoise, both the color and the element, is thoroughly modern in both feeling and manner.
Italian based accessory designer, Linda Hagobian treated the stone in a very contemporary way, polishing it and pairing it with ebony wood and diamonds for a striking alliance. Jewelry design house, Veto, used the color turquoise to advantage with their statement making aluminum drop earrings and necklaces, perfect fare for other blue RTW and summer whites. Jewelry designers Yaakov Hillel and Vaid-ROMA paired polished turquoise beads and 18 karat and 24 karat gold in beautiful necklaces and earrings.
So get ahead of the trend, look for turquoise jewelry as a summer refresher.
