Did you know? Turquoise has long been considered a summer stone. Before today’s modern birthstone list, turquoise was considered to be a birthstone for both June and July as far back as the fifteenth century. With its inviting, vibrant, and cheerful blue to green hues, it’s no wonder why this stone is perfect for pairing in our summer wardrobes. Consider these turquoise styling tips for wearing turquoise this summer!

In particular, we selected Persian turquoise jewelry for our photo shoot. The highly reflective pyrite inclusions found within this stone provide an extra stunning sparkle when worn in bright summer suns.

Choose your turquoise to contrast against your denim. Persian turquoise is ideal for darker toned fabric, and pops beautifully when paired together. This pyrite and turquoise combo also provides an interesting visual texture that subtly stands out from the solid blocks of color your white top and blue denim provide.

To liven up your next business meeting, try pairing pairing a hot summer color like Living Coral with turquoise. These two colors naturally complement one another, and have been a popular choice since the 70s. And, with these vintage looks coming back, trying raiding your closet for a quick and easy on-trend look. We love this combination of glinting Persian turquoise and pulsing Living Coral for its ability to evoke an enchanting under-the-sea look!
