Turquoise – “Gemstone of the People”

In many cultures of the Old and New Worlds, Turquoise 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 people”.

Turquoise Jewelry in either a contemporary or traditional setting is always in style and accentuates  an eclectic, natural look. Be sure you have a piece of Turquoise Jewelry in your Collection it’s a must have this season.

How to care for Turquoise Jewelry:

Being a phosphate mineral, Turquoise is inherently fragile and sensitive to solvents; perfume and other cosmetics will attack the finish and may alter the colour of turquoise gems, as will skin oils, as will most commercial jewelry cleaning fluids. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight may also discolor or dehydrate turquoise. Care should therefore be taken when wearing such jewels: cosmetics, including sunscreen and hair spray, should be applied before putting on turquoise jewelry, and they should not be worn to a beach or other sun-bathed environment. After use, turquoise should be gently cleaned with a soft cloth to avoid a build up of residue, and should be stored in its own container to avoid scratching by harder gems. Turquoise can also be adversely affected if stored in an airtight container.

Style Watch

Fashion and Jewelry Trends :  2012 is all about sustainability, recycled, raw pieces that will range from classic to exotic and of course the color blue specially when it comes to fashion and jewelry; turquoise tones, navy, aqua, azure, in general blue will definitely be the color of the year. In addition to blue, greens and purples be complementary colors, while yellows will give a contrast and the beige, khaki and lavender tones will soften the year. The trick is to always have few pieces that are in season but always opt for variety when in comes to color and jewelry.
One of the must have jewelry  items that will complete your wardrobe is a Choker Necklace.

On a personal note: it’s all about how things are put together, regardless of materials
