The foundation of this contemporary treasure is an openwork cutout disc of intricately detailed sterling silver with an oxidized finish. At the top of the disc is a bezel-set round gold mother of pearl gem, encircling a square cabochon of purple spiny oyster shell. Completing the spirit wheel are polished stones of red and purple spiny oyster and green turquoise. This modern tradition enhancer is a refreshing display of natural beauty. Measures 2" long x 1-3/4" wide and features a hidden snap hinge bail. Made in America with gemstones from around the world.
Modern design with traditional inspiration. Purple spiny oyster and green turquoise pay tribute to the earth and the sea, and the breathtaking color of the sun is represented by gold mother of pearl. Traditional symbols of the sun and everlasting life are given stunning contemporary styling.
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.
I was lucky enough to have purchased both the pendant and earrings. Unique design, clear and bright stones and precision workmanship makes this a favorite. US made makes a difference.
