The eight points of a Maltese cross are said to symbolize such values as loyalty, piety, generosity, bravery and honor. Gleaming sterling silver and turquoise stones from the Sleeping Beauty mine in Arizona form the unmistakable shape of this ancient symbol. The Sleeping Beauty mine is known for the color of its solid blue gemstones and the oval blue cabochons in this enhancer are a wonderful example of why the mine is famous. Featuring a hidden snap hinge bail, the enhancer measures approximately 1-5/8" long x 1-5/8" wide. Mined and made in America.
Take a journey to the turquoise mines of Arizona with Carolyn Pollack's Newest collection. Set in 14K gold and sterling silver, these turquoise designs hail from two Arizona mines. While Kingman nuggets are bright blue and green with black matrix, Sleeping Beauty is a vibrant blue color with no matrix. Some pieces feature both types of turquoise creating a unique and natural look.
Like all fine jewelry, Carolyn Pollack Sterling Silver Jewelry should be handled carefully. Store jewelry in a plastic bag, dry and wrapped in tissue paper, when not being worn or displayed. Clean sterling silver with a silver polishing cloth when necessary, but never subject to chlorine, silver dips, chemical solutions or ultrasonic cleaners, as these substances can cause the natural gemstones to discolor. Never wear jewelry in a swimming pool.
