In many cultures, Turquoise is believed to be a protective talisman, a
color of deep compassion and healing, and a color of faith and truth,
inspired by water and sky. Through years of color word-association
studies, we also find that to many people, Turquoise represents an
escape, taking them to a tropical paradise that is pleasant and inviting
– even if it is only a fantasy.
Whether envisioned as a tranquil ocean surrounding a tropical island or
a protective stone warding off evil spirits, Turquoise is a color that
most people respond to positively. It is universally flattering, has
appeal for men and women, and translates easily to fashion and
interiors. With both warm and cool undertones, Turquoise pairs nicely
with any other color in the spectrum. Turquoise adds a splash of
excitement to neutrals and browns, complements reds and pinks, creates a
classic maritime look with deep blues, livens up all other greens, and
is especially trend-setting with yellow-greens.
