22 Turquoise Trinkets to Wear This Summer

Turquoise is a misunderstood stone, with its cracked, veined surface conjuring up muddled Southwestern stereotypes: the great aunt from Taos living in an artists' commune; the new-age hippie yoga teacher; or the cowboy with an eye for flair.

But turquoise is also the color of summer — an anthem of aquatic blue with earthy road maps carved by Mother Nature. It's perfect against tan, bare necks and palettes of sandy whites. When understated, it's elegant: Just take one look at Jennifer Meyer's pinprick of a rock on her thin gold bangle. When used boldly, it's downright cool, as demonstrated by Pamela Love's spiked earrings. It can bring depth to a cuff, turn a necklace into a statement, and add interest without sparkle. Turquoise is for the city girl now, or the country mouse who knows how to dress like one. Click through to see 22 visions of blue in all their desert-meets-urban-jungle glory.
