Turquoise has appeared in the fashions and cultures of the world for centuries. It seems clear that turquoise has been considered a stone of life and good fortune for thousands of years. It was believed to have healing properties, and regarded as a holy stone, a good-luck-charm or a talisman; it was also worn as protection to ward off the influence of dark and evil powers. Turquoise is also very popular as a token of friendship, since it’s reputed to be responsible for faithfulness and reliable relationships.
With all that being said, it is basically just plain gorgeous and I’m positive that is what draws us all to it, including celebrities.
