Turquise is a lovely in-between colour that has come to represent water, and so the names aqua and aquamarine are also synonymous with this fashion forward hue. Turquoise also a valuable and popular mineral often turned into jewelry. Turquoise is closely associated with the Middle East and the American Southwest.
To use turquoise in fashion and art you can create feminine appeal with the lighter more washed out shades of turquoise imparting an old-fashioned 50s and 60s retro feel.
