Cindy Edelstein of National Jeweler reports in her weekly TrendTracker post that turquoise is “having a real moment in the sun.” That’s an appropriate description, seeing as the cheerfully colored stone is perfect for summer.
Of course, just because we use a bright color in our jewelry doesn’t mean we can’t be our morbid, skull-loving selves. My one-of-a-kind, turquoise-and-ruby skull ring is number 18 in Cindy’s gallery of turquoise jewelry.
Here’s another view of the ring.
You can check out my original blog post on this ring to see pictures of it in progress. I have a couple of pairs of complementary earrings coming up. The first pair won’t feature an actual skull, so if you love the combination of turquoise and rubies as much as I do, but don’t like “skeleton heads,” as a friend’s kid once described skulls, you’ll be in luck!
Big thanks to Cindy for including my piece in her report!
