What up gorgeous readers!
Now, if you’re followers of our instagram feed, you’ll know that last week I received a gorgeous little brown box in the post, and upon opening it found the sweetest little 5 stoned turquoise and yellow gold ring. It had, of course, flown all the way from Jerusalem, a gift from my all time favourite designer, Artemer Studio. I’d always wanted to add turquoise to my yellow gold and diamond stack, so this understated, delicate piece was the was the perfect gift!
It got me thinking though, I’d always had a bit of a ‘thing’ for that combination: yellow gold, turquoise and diamonds. A spin on the traditionally bohemian silver and turquoise jewellery, with the rise in popularity of white gold the underdog, yellow gold, seems to have risen to occasion, becoming the more alternative choice. Pair that with turquoise, and now we’re REALLY talking.
I mean, take a cue from some of Artemer’s other designs, they’re just divine.
A Simple Equation
Turquoise + White + Gold = EVERYTHING
Yes, it’s that simple. This equation underlines the definition of boho, and it’s the surest way to set off that crisp white dress, to illuminate your glowing skin and may your gold shine. And for this reason, TURQUOISE ROCKS.
…I mean! That last image is from one of my favourite real back yard weddings, and check out how those chunky turquoise stones enhance the otherwise neutral palette of the bridesmaids. Throw on a chunky turquoise necklace and we’re talking immediate boho vibes and a burst of stunning, albeit still very natural looking, colour!
The Crowing Glory
As always, we’re huge fans of adorning our heads with something a little alternative, and doesn’t this Free People crown just scream ‘Goddess’?! I love the raw, uncut feel to the crystals and turquoise, and they’ll look so incredibly striking against any hair colour!
If you fancy something a little more gentle, simply weaving strings of small turquoise chips through your flower crown, allowing them to fall delicately across your dishevelled locks is the perfect answer… Don’t they just make that portrait?!
The Low Slung Gypsy Belt
A piece for the gypsy-loving, folk inspired brides, these low slung belts have been sneaking their way on to my Pinterest feed for months now, and they’ve made the Free People collection too. Worn over an unstructured dress, low slung on the hips, these gorgeous metallic pieces take any minimalistic dress to seriously beautiful hippy heights! And that’s right, we’re all about the turquoise embellished pieces, making your dress look fresh and white than white and enhancing your skin’s gorgeous glow.
When it comes to turquoise, we are ALL about statement pieces here at Festival Brides. In many cases, statement means ‘big’ in the jewellery world, and although that is the case for some of these designs, the deep, mermaid blue of Turquoise is striking in any form, especially when worn by a bride.
Plus, how cute is that Hamsa necklace below…
We LOVE a choker right now, and this one my Regal Rose is totally on point (as is their entire collection!). Seriously stand out.
Bright to the Right
Whether it’s a statement rock or a delicate smattering of tiny rings, adorning your right hand with turquoise is just perfection.
This piece by the (oh-so-incredible) Oxford Trunk has got us head over heels, especially alongside that sweet little diamond. I mean!
Boho Blue Piercings
For all my pierced brides to be – I envy you! I’ve given up getting pierced, as my body just doesn’t seem to want to comply, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still lust after them! I wore tiny turquoise studs in all 4 of my piercings on my wedding day; perfectly boho, and striking without being overwhelming… Oh how we adore you, Turquoise!
…That Medusa piercing is incredible – is there an easy solution to faking a Medusa?! Somebody inform me, please!
Like a Mermaid
So, if I’ve captured your heart with my rather ardent expressions of love for this precious stone, you might just wanna consider this: majorly trending with all my daring brides to be are turquoise locks. Yup, for pure, undiluted festival vibes on your wedding day, a turquoise mane is the pièce de résistance!
…Who doesn’t want mermaid hair, seriously?! That said, if you love the mermaid feel of turquoise, but have all your jewellery planned and dying your hair isn’t quite your thang, drop the girls at In Your Dreams a bell, for shimming turquoise adornments and striking eyes!
…All that, from one tiny little ring! Artemer’s pieces, quite clearly, are super inspiring!
Peace + Love,
