Turquoise ~ is ancient, yet again and again it finds itself back in fashion. Its shining sky blue is one of the most popular trend colours in the world of jewellery and fashion.In many cultures of the Old and New Worlds, this gemstone has been esteemed for thousands of years as a holy stone, a bringer of good fortune or a talisman. It really does have the right to be called a ‘gemstone of the peoples’.
My necklace was shot for a magazine yet unfortunately it was not used for the editorial. April 2011 issue of Marie Claire has a great spread about turquoise jewelry so it is only right that I share my personal take on it since I have a love for this holy stone.
