Yesterday I wrote about trendy new gemstone colors for summer 2008, and I said I thought yellow turquoise may becoming a new hot trend, and my hunch has been confirmed by overwhelming amounts of Google sites and new jewelry designs in the anniversary edition of BeadStyle (I love this edition! Please buy it if you are in love with making jewelry)!
So why yellow? Is blue out now? Yellow seems to be the new green this year, but please do not be fooled by how they are made. It is important to know that yellow turquoise is actually rather rare so often times most of the “yellow turquoise” on the market is enhanced in color, these are the stones from China, or the gemstones found are often times really Jasper or serpentine with black rock markings that make them look like turquoise.
