Turquoise – the true colour of this time of year

While our colour pallets tend to be dominated by gold, green and red in the run up to Christmas, the traditional birthstone colour for December is blue – in particular turquoise.

We’ve picked out a few pieces to inspire you.

Because of the graduations in colours and veins in turquoise it is a stone that can stand out even when used very simply as here with silver focal point in a necklace by Pamela Lauz

Here Blue Skies Jewellery has used irregular slabs of turquoise to naturally create a statement with some beads as spacers.

In this turquoise and wire ring the stone does the talking with the setting being as unobtrusive as possible. Ring from Khum Wieng Kham

But you don’t have to go big with turquoise. In this ring by Charlotte’s Web, the small stone adds a highlight to the silver.

Turquoise also works well with other strong colours such as lapis lazuli or coral, as seen above in a necklace from Making a Statement Jewellery

You can also find turquoise druzy stones – the glittery blue looks great in a simple gold setting as in this pendant by Lovely Leffler

    One of my daughters loves turquoise – she was actually born on 9th Jan but was due on 31st December! I have made a note of these lovely examples for future reference!
