Squash blossoms - a traditional Native American design of fluted and elongated sterling silver beads - highlight this necklace of lapis beads and sterling silver native pearls. Each element tells a story. Lapis is called the "heaven stone" for its deep blue reflection of the night sky. Native pearls are an integral part of every Southwestern wardrobe. The squash blossom is a symbol of abundance and good fortune. Together, they create a necklace of dimension and beauty.

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 genuine gemstones to discolor. Never wear jewelry in a swimming pool.
