Three classically Southwestern elements combine in this traditional necklace that is a must-have for any Southwestern jewelry collector. Barrel-shaped beads in blue lapis are highlighted by five sterling silver squash blossoms and eight sterling silver native pearls. Look to the sky with this gemstone-- in traditional tales, 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, while the squash blossom is a traditional symbol of abundance and good fortune. From the American West collection, this classic Southwest necklace measures 17" long, is adjustable to 20" long and has a sterling silver lobster claw clasp. Made in America with gemstones from around the world.
From the bright artwork of Santa Fe to the spiritual expressions of Native Americans, life in the Southwest is a feast to the senses, a vision of color and creativity, filled with stories and soulful tributes to nature. Among mesas and deserts, mountains and canyons, the landscape is a vibrant rainbow of color, the sky above it an arching expanse of pure blue. For those who call this place home, each day is a celebration of beauty and freedom and an adventure waiting to unfold.
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.
