Turquoise makes a bold statement when set in yellow gold–the crisp blue stands out with the buttery yellow of the gold. This gemstone, often used as December’s birthstone, should not always be associated with Southwestern Jewelry (sterling silver only). I think people should add more turquoise and yellow gold jewelry into their wardrobe, and I’ve noticed that designers are creating more and more pieces with this in mind. Check out what I’m talking about below!
These earrings use the turquoise and yellow gold combination, while adding the white mother-of-pearl. The heart motif makes them fun and flirty, and they dangle 1.25 inches. They are from Heavenly Treasures, and sell for $198.
I’ve seen many of these necklaces with the same style, however this one is unique because the turquoise stone is carved. These necklaces are often called “chicklet” style necklaces. The flower carving makes is stand out above the rest. The necklace can be ordered in sterling silver ($65), 14k Goldfill ($85) or 14k solid yellow gold ($135). I like when that choice is available. From Lunessa!
Here is a vintage ring that uses the turquoise and yellow gold combination. This ring hails from England and dates back to 1903. This type of style is called a bypass ring. The diamonds are rose-cut and the ring is a size 4 1/2. From The Three Graces which has some beautiful antique and vintage jewelry. The price on this piece is $495.
