Take a journey to the turquoise mines of Arizona with Carolyn Pollack's newest collection and this Sleeping Beauty ring. Set in 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.
The turquoise in this Sleeping Beauty ring is part of a long tradition of the people of the Southwest who prize turquoise as the heart of Southwestern tradition, as currency, as a talisman of good health and most importantly as beautiful jewelry. Known as the modern birthstone for December, turquoise is often called the "sky stone" by Southwestern people. It is believed to have healing powers, while promoting spiritual attunement and attracting abundance and prosperity. Several Southwestern states celebrate it as their state stone: Arizona, New Mexico and Nevada.
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.
