Turquoise Studs!


I freely admit that when I think of turquoise earrings, I never think of tidy, wear-with-everything studs. I always sort of mentally categorise my turquoise into the statement jewellery category - even the smaller pieces. One of my working theories is that this is because the vibrant color of turquoise has so much presence. In fact, that presence is one of the reasons I love it so much, especially as I get older and all of the color seems to be washing out of my face and hair like a set of watercolor paints left out in the rain. But, I digress.

Whatever the reason, I am so glad that online retailer Shop LC offered to send me this pair of 14 karat yellow gold Arizona sleeping beauty turquoise stud earrings.  They lend a vibrancy to a look without having to scream from a clifftop, and they also work really nicely with some of my other turquoise pieces. It's fair to say that they've settled into their new home quite nicely.

Shop LC has an interesting success story behind it. The company was originally launched in 2007 as The Jewelry Channel, a name many of you may remember. Of course, 2007 was not long before the economy took a full-on face plant into the great economic slop bucket, and The Jewelry Channel fully expected to liquidate their assets and close their doors. As a part of their strategy to mitigate their losses, they formed the Liquidation Channel  - the "LC" in Shop LC. However, instead of scraping-up what they could of their company and retreating into the ether, they actually experienced steady growth as the Liquidation Channel, rebranded this year as Shop LC, and..well…here we are!

I love a good beat-the-odds success story, don't you?

  1. I'm gray, too, and have a pair of recently bought (church rummage sale) bright turquoise and silver earrings that I like for the pop. One thing is that I've always preferred turquoise with silver– probably because Native American jewelry was all the rage when I was in high school. I enjoy your blog, having recently found it. Thank you for taking the time to write it.
    One question: where in Florida do you visit? I'm in Ft. Lauderdale– very different weather from yours.

    1. Hi Cara, and welcome to the blog! Thanks for reading…it's always nice to know that someone is actually out there reading it! My husband and I are in the process of building a house in Port Charlotte (Gulf Coast). We are planning a move there in a few years time, but decided to go ahead and build before the market recovered too much and it was beyond our price capabilities. :)

    2. As a native Texan with roots in New Mexico I love turquoise in all its forms and colors. Non -stabilized is always tricky because it stains so easily so I keep that for special occasions, but as someone with reddish dark brown hair I like the contrast too. BTW, I'm also now a Florida resident.

  2. Kristin, you look beautiful and your cardigan is simply gorgeous. If you don't mind me asking, but where is it from and what is the brand?

    1. Hello there! The cardigan is something I found at a consignment store in St. Paul, MN. I believe it's Boston Proper? Hwre's the link to the original post about it from last year. You may have to copy and paste. http://www.highlandfashionista.com/2015/12/the-last-minute-sweater.html

    1. Hi Jane! It took this time! It may be that you're not seeing your comments right away because I moderate them before I put them up. It cuts down on the spam that sneaks through. But nonetheless, thanks for reading, and glad to hear that you too are part of the Natural Hair Club For Women. :)
