Turquoise jewelry, a must-have for celebrities and fashion divas, is soaring in popularity worldwide. Whether it’s Taylor Swift’s turquoise earrings, Beyoncé’s turquoise bracelet, Sofia Vergara’s turquoise ring, or Lara Spencer in her stunning turquoise necklace. Specialty retailers and department stores are racing to add turquoise to their product lines these days.

“Everyone loves turquoise,” says a smiling Romie Salem of Turquoise Network, a leading online jewelry retailer. “Unfortunately, much of what is in today’s market is overpriced or just imitation turquoise.”

Salem shares some guidelines to filter out the real from the fake. “When shopping for authentic turquoise, there are five main descriptions to look for: Natural, Stabilized, Reconstituted, Dyed Stone, and Imitation.”

Five Facts about Turquoise Classification

NATURAL: Untreated turquoise with the same properties it had when it came out of the ground. Very little jewelry in the market contains natural turquoise (probably less than 1%, according to Salem).

STABILIZED: Turquoise that has been treated to enhance its color and make it more durable. Stabilized turquoise is “Genuine Turquoise” by jewelry industry standards. Most turquoise jewelry in the market is that, including those sold by TV shopping networks and department stores. Salem points out that even the highest grades of turquoise, such as Sleeping Beauty, are usually stabilized for better jewelry production and wear.

HOWLITE/MAGNESITE/OTHER STONES: Not turquoise at all. Natural stones are dyed to resemble turquoise.

IMITATION/PLASTIC/RESIN/BLOCK: Not turquoise at all, but merely a mix of chemicals.

Given that real turquoise jewelry is difficult to mass-produce, retailers often struggle with inventory shortages and have little incentive to lower their markups. “That’s where we are different; our mission is to make high-quality sterling silver and genuine turquoise jewelry affordable for everyone.”

Salem concluded with an emphasis on quality: “It isn’t simply about low prices. It’s more about offering high-quality products at the lowest prices. Real, honest-to-goodness ‘value’—that’s the key.”
