The extraordinary beauty of the Star Maiden, who came to earth, according to Ojibwa legend, in the form of a delicate water lily to live near the people she always loved, is celebrated in these elegant silver and gemstone earrings. The flower is crafted from a meticulous design of openwork sterling silver, from which dangle flowing strands that end in beads of sparkling peridot. A single pear-shaped peridot bead also adorns the center of the blossom, perhaps representing the distant star from which the Maiden happily descended. These water lily earrings measures 3" long x 1-5/8" wide and feature lever backs. Made in America with gemstones from around the world.
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.
