Is there any stone more perfectly suited to the idyllic carefree nature of the summer season than turquoise?

Turquoise has always seemed to me to be the most cheerful, fun, and whimsical gemstone around. These brightly colored, yet unassuming beauties are the pure embodiment of summer. There is something about wearing a gorgeous turquoise piece that just seems to lighten the spirits and brighten up a room.

Whether you happen to be an effortlessly cool trendsetter, (think Verdura’s diamond-studded “Polka Dot” ring, $8,500), carefree and fun-loving, (think Van Cleef & Arpels’ Vintage Alhambra necklace), a bit edgy, (think Yossi Harari’s “Libra” turquoise beaded wrap necklace, $2,285), or truly glamorous, (think Paul Morelli’s “Oval Window” cabochon turquoise & pavĂ©-set diamond cocktail ring, $10,760), a bit of turquoise is the perfect way to break out of your jewelry “rut” and embrace the color of the season!

Whatever your personal style, there is a turquoise piece for you.
