Put a Ring on It: Turquoise Rings

February 15, 2013, 16:59 pm  Posted by Lark
 

When they retired, my lovebird grandparents enjoyed traveling to destinations near and far, and my always-on-trend grandma often returned home with a signature piece (or pieces) of jewelry from their journeys. When she passed away a few years ago, I inherited a few of her beautiful treasures, including some turquoise jewelry from a trip she made to the southwest with my grandpa. There’s just something about turquoise—both the stone and the color—that appeals to me, and I love being able to wear jewelry that my grandma held dear.

In this Season of Love, I’ve thought about my one-of-a-kind, fearless, loving grandma and the tangible things of hers I can still hold and wear that link me to her memory. As I embarked on this four-day foray into the world of unexpected, eye-catching, dazzling rings as symbols of love, I found myself drawn to pieces that highlighted turquoise and its evocative hue.

Whether it’s a pale aqua stone in a Victorian setting or a striking geometric mosaic made of turquoise blocks, the work featured below caught my attention and simply wouldn’t let go. These rings are all so different from one another, yet they share a color family rich with significance, which might be why I like them all so much—they possess a commonality, and yet for the maker and the wearer, each ring is its own story.

Big thanks go to the inventive, talented Etsy artists who made these rings—seriously, you’re amazing.
