Turquoise isn't high glamour like diamonds or emeralds, but it can have the same dramatic impact. The light, bright blue hue of turquoise is feminine and eye-catching, but it has an earthier feel. We love the way celebs like Salma Hayek and Cameron Diaz have used turquoise to make a statement. It's a stone that looks fantastic dressed up or down, and with pretty much every color in the rainbow — try it with black in Winter, white in Summer, jewel tones for a glam party, or sunny colors like Kyra Sedgwick's Golden Globes gown for gorgeous contrast. There are varying types of turquoise; vintage turquoise pieces from Native American tribes might cost more than turquoise stone. We found some pretty turquoise pieces to buy right now; just click on our slideshow to shop.
