Sometimes called Ribbon Turquoise, boulder turquoise is comprised of jasper surrounding ribbons of turquoise. Not surprisingly – turquoise – one of the most common stones used in Native American and Southwest-inspired jewelry is quite recognizable. It’s reminiscent of the big blue sky regardless of its hue.
Boulder turquoise is often unknown to many.
I’ve seen a lot of boulder turquoise at gem shows and here at Beach Treasures in Duck. Just when I think I’ve seen it all, another unique piece catches my eye…leading me to believe that the combinations of sterling and stone are nearly countless…which in my mind is why boulder turquoise always makes a statement!
Boulder turquoise has great coloring with its various shades of teal running through rich, earthy browns like veins. When you see a piece, you’d be right to guess that it’s been crafted by Native American jewelry artisans. No doubt, when set in beautifully detailed or brilliantly sleek sterling, a piece of boulder turquoise jewelry catches the eye even if the gemstone isn’t immediately recognizable.
Interesting, attractive, eye-catching…
And when you’re thinking about fashion – and jewelry in particular – this is what a statement piece is all about.
A statement piece is the thing people notice first about your outfit. It's not necessarily an overly colorful or oversized piece, but it is by design, bold and unique. It's just one of many ways to express your distinctive style. When you put it on, it’s bold and bodacious – and that's essential. It doesn’t have to be over the top…well, unless you want it to be;-)
A boulder turquoise pendant is a terrific choice for turning a casual outfit into a put-together, dressier one. And because its colors are relatively neutral, I find it appeals to many of my customers. Pair it with a solid-colored top or dress and see it pop! Elevate your favorite t-shirt and jeans with a statement piece for a dressier look…or add a bit of style to your workday wardrobe.
But there really aren’t any rules…not for the BODACIOUS! Savor our collection of boulder turquoise and find inspiration in its unique character. Whether a pendant, cuff, or earrings…find the piece for you and show off your BOLD style.
