Turquoise Larimar Swarovsky Pearl Lampwork Glass Pendant Chain Necklace
A turquoise composite oval pendant in blue and brown forms the centerpiece of this stunning southwestern necklace.

Accenting and complimenting the central stone are a 14mm faceted larimar round, a lampwork glass round in dark honey, faceted jasper beads, turquoise oval beads, Swarovsky copper rounds, blue tortoise Czech faceted discs, reconstructed turquoise tubes, chocolate howlite turquoise beads, and mahogany opaque seed beads.

Silver plated diamond-shaped metal beads , a large silver plated toggle clasp, and silver plated chain add the finishing touches to this piece. The toggle is placed in front rather than behind the neck for easy fastening and a distinctive, fashionable look. This gorgeous necklace measures 17 inches. The dangle, including the toggle clasp, measures 5-1/2 inches. The colors were inspired by a painting titled "Southwest Sky" by Diane Hardy.

"Southwest Sky" by Diane Hardy
Turquoise, a symbol of friendship, is said to protect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune. The meaning of the color turquoise is open communication and clarity of thought.

Larimar, also called "Stefilia's Stone", is a rare blue variety of pectolite found only in the Dominican Republic, in the Caribbean. It is said to soothe the emotions and teach respect, love and nurturing. It is a stone of love, personal power, and healing.
