Turquoise fun facts
Turquoise, a beautiful gemstone with a sea-green colour that has been prized for millennia, is found in many hues and patterns. Turquoise gemstones are found in arid, semi-desert regions around the world and have been mined since ancient times.
The name Turquoise comes from the French word for "Turkish," as the stone was originally brought to Europe from Turkey. Turquoise is considered a sacred stone in many cultures and has been used in charms, amulets, and talismans for centuries.
Turquoise is also a popular stone in Native American and Southwestern jewellery.
Celebrated wearers of turquoise
Famous wearers of turquoise jewellery include Queen Nefertiti of Egypt, who was often depicted wearing a turquoise necklace, and Cleopatra, who is said to have used turquoise as part of her beauty regime (crushed turquoise was used as an eyeliner).
Other famous turquoise jewellery wearers include Queen Elizabeth I and Princess Diana. In more recent years, turquoise has been worn by celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Kate Middleton, Taylor Swift, and Scarlett Johansson.
Turquoise properties and birthstone

How to style your Latelita Jewellery
When it comes to styling turquoise jewellery, there are a few things to keep in mind. First of all, turquoise is a very bold stone, so you don't need to wear too much jewellery at once. A single turquoise ring or necklace will make a statement without being too overpowering. Secondly, turquoise looks great with other gemstones, so don't be afraid to mix and match. Turquoise earrings look especially beautiful when worn with a turquoise necklace. And finally, turquoise goes well with both gold and silver, so you can choose whichever metal you prefer.
