Turquoise is perhaps one of the most striking and unique gemstones in existence. Known for its striking hues of blue that will range anywhere from cerulean to pale with inclusions of blue-green and even hints of copper particles, this stone is also one of the first to have been employed in the fashion industry. In fact, examples of turquoise jewelry can be traced back thousands of years.

In modern times, this jewelry has been heavily associated with both the Middle East and Indian communities of the southwestern United States. It is employed in nearly every design possible. Turquoise will commonly be seen embedded in necklaces, bracelets, rings, earring and pendants. Indeed, some of the most "organic" jewelry will frequently make use of this stone.

While this stone can be cut to accommodate nearly any design, it is most often seen exhibited in its natural form. Combined with other semi-precious stones, turquoise ensembles can lend an air of singularity to any wardrobe.
