Sky High


Bright accent colors are adding pop and sixties flair to fashion this season so it’s not surprising that turquoise is back in style. Irresistibly cheery and relatively affordable, turquoise’s unique shade also blends well with green and purple, two other important accent colors for clothing and accessories.

This season turquoise is more likely to be set in yellow gold than silver, allowing it to mix with warm sunny shades, browns, and oranges. This fair-weather gem now has year-round appeal.

For such a bright color, turquoise jewelry is surprisingly versatile. You’ll find it flatters most women. And see how the color pops? Try putting together a grouping of turquoise pieces to get the same effect in your cases. If you don’t have enough yet for impact, add jewelry with one other bright color. Especially in the middle of winter, it will be a mini-vacation in your store and a welcome reminder that despite the pressures of life today, blue skies are ahead.
