With sandy beaches on the horizon nothing screams vacation time just like turquoise jewellery for summer. Making a splash this season, the famed blue stone returns bigger and more vibrant than before in modern contemporary designs set with diamonds and gold. For SS18, Isabel Marant continued to champion her boho-carefree spirit with dainty turquoise beads teamed with cowrie seashells, while Jacquie Aiche went the luxe route and enveloped the stone in tiny precious diamonds. How to wear the nostalgic vacation pieces? Ditch the traditional two and go for a single statement earring with pretty beads or follow the Native American belief that the stone aids in protection and just layer turquoise bangle after turquoise bangle for the ultimate in arm candy this summer. For something slightly bolder, Christie Nicolaides’s cuff makes a statement. Style across the sleeves of white dresses or shirt cuffs, and consider stacking up with finer pieces for a play on dimension. In necklaces, Jessie Western’s cool and contemporary beaded piece is carved by Navajo Native American Indian artist from Arizona, in natural turquoise. Look towards the designer for one of a kind pieces.
