Return to Turquoise: 9 Jewels in the Stone of Summer

Andreoli turquoise and citrine necklace


Around this time every year, I write about turquoise. I may fear the thought of being unoriginal or (gasp!) too predictable, but I am a creature of habit; I crave turquoise in the summer just like I search for everything pumpkin-scented in the fall. It’s a way for me, I think, to appreciate that the season has officially arrived. No stone says summer better than turquoise does. I love its cheerful color, its storied history, its varied characteristics. No wonder it’s such a feel-good sight: Historically, turquoise was used for getting rid of negative energy, and its brightness is said to increase happiness and confidence. It pairs beautifully with anything in your wardrobe, though I’m partial to matching it with breezy white dresses and all-black ensembles. If you’ve stuck with me year after year, reader, though I may sound like a broken record gushing over the very same stone, some very clever members of our industry are providing us with new designs to outfit that stone. So the good news is, we have some fresh beauties to look at. Here are nine turquoise jewels that may just unlock the key to an endless summer.
