A gorgeous Larimar semi-precious gemstone that only is from the Dominican Republic is wrapped in Argentium* sterling silver which is anti-tarnish and nickle free and a step above regular sterling silver. “Larimar was recently rediscovered in 1974 by a local, Mendez and named for his daughter “Lari” and the Spanish word sea “Mar”. It is very rare and expensive to find outside the Caribbean. Some believe that it soothes emotions and cools tempers while alleviating stress, bringing a feeling of calmness to the wearer. It is associated with the element of water, much like it's color, though it was formed with volcanic roots.” This piece measures 2 ½” tall x 1 1/4” wide x 3/8”. This pendant does not come with a chain, but I do sell Argentium Sterling Silver chains if you would like to purchase one.

-I take special care in creating your piece, cleaning it, polishing it and then sealing it to help slow down the tarnishing, so please follow the care and storage instructions.
CARE AND STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS
-Please keep your jewelry piece in the plastic bag provided along the black anti-tarnish square that comes in the bag. This will help protect it from tarnishing. I have also enclosed a soft polishing cloth. Rub the metal on your piece with the cloth with a medium pressure. The cloth works even when it turns lightly black. Do not wash the cloth or it will not work. Copper and sterling silver does tarnish with time. I recommend anti-tarnish jewelry boxes. Regular jewelry boxes will not help slow your pieces from tarnishing unless you keep them in the bag provided. Always keep your jewelry in a dark place.
-I recommend removing your jewelry before showering, bathing, using household cleaners, chemicals, or essential oils; doing manual jobs like gardening or washing dishes and applying lotions. Please do not use jewelry cleaners on this jewelry. You will damage the patina (if copper) and/or gemstone. You can wash it in mild dish washing liquid like Dawn and warm water, but not on pearls.
-Please note that the wire weaving and wrapping of semi-precious gemstones hardens the wire, but care must be given to your piece. Please don't place your jewelry loose in your purse or pocket without protection for it could be damaged and bent. All wire can bend under the right circumstances. Follow the care and storage instructions for a long term enjoyment.
*ARGENTIUM STERLING SILVER
“Argentium Silver is purer than traditional Sterling Silver. All of these benefits make Argentium better for the wearer and gentler on the environment as less chemicals are used in production.” (Taken from ArgentiumSilver.com.) It has less copper than Sterling and a whiter metal. These qualities make it an anti-tarnish Sterling Silver. If you, like many, have problems with your jewelry tarnishing or need hypoallergenic jewelry, you will enjoy owning my pieces. Please follow my care instructions too.
If you see a design that you like, but would like it in another gemstone color or metal (copper, silver, or gold) please contact me and let me know by using the letter and number in the parenthesis that you can find behind the item that you like. Or I can design something new for you too. I have a wide variety of different colors and sizes of gemstones to choose from or you can provide your own.
