Finding edgy-looking Turquoise jewelry, December’s birthstone, can be a real adventure.   Most turquoise  seems to be made into Southwest style silver jewelry or  Arts and Craft projects with tiny beads. 

Why settle for those styles just because turquoise is your birthstone?

Turquoise has a storied past of  unique and expensive jewelry looks:    From antique Persian baby blue turquoise neck strands to 1920s art deco  jewelry designs with diamonds and onyx.
Turquoise ballerina style rings with diamonds were super popular in the 60s and 70s.

If you were born in December,  here are tips to find fashion-forward  turquoise jewelry:

  1. Ask your personal jewelry about turquoise styles they have warehoused or not on display.
  2. Check estate jewelers for art deco looks made with turquoise.
  3. Check pawn shops with diverse styles of jewelry
  4. Look at online jewelry stores.

Finding the eye-pleasing blue of turquoise with a modern flair can be a real challenge,  but worth it,   to discover a unique piece of  birthstone jewelry.
