We admit it - we are obsessed with turquoise! Why wouldn’t we? This vibrant love child of the light blue of the sky and the mysterious green of the sea possesses magical, mood enhancing powers. It makes us cheerful, happy and giddy.
For thousands of years turquoise was held in high esteem by the ancient civilizations. For ancient Egyptians it was a symbol of rebirth; ancient Persians held it responsible for the material well being of the wearer. Native Americans believed it opened a direct connection between the sky and Earth. Some believe that turquoise will grow pale on a sick person and recover its color when it is worn by a healthy person. Some spiritualists believe that turquoise will help the wearer to start new projects (we need some turquoise jewelry, pronto!) and this is in addition to attracting success and prosperity, influencing creativity, and enhancing communication.
Fashion could never have enough of turquoise. Time after time this magnificent color was pronounced the hottest color of the season and SS12 is no exception. The boys’ fashion, long deprived of flamboyant colors, had embraced turquoise, among other colors, with eagerness of dessert soaking up spring showers.
