Most women associate turquoise with American Indian artisan work and/or Ralph Lauren interpretations. Its popularity, however, especially this time of year, extends widely beyond the single genre. The color works well next to a tan, stands out against seasonal neutrals without raising its voice, and, as a mineral, coordinates with natural materials worn in the heat. It sings of the archaic, yet used in modern design feels current.
This great looking piece has a classical feel. The really interesting combination of crystals and beads makes it substantial, but not heavy. Perfect for strapless or spaghetti strap pieces.
