Sea turtle necklace with a unique, Caribbean larimar shell on a sterling silver body. The sea turtle hangs at a slight angle for a different look! Let's face it, aren't we all a little off-kilter at times? The variegated gemstone used for the shell looks like she is carrying the ocean on her back! Caribbean larimar in its many blue hues is endlessly reminiscent of the beautiful Caribbean waters.
Turtles, in ancient symbolism, represent creation, endurance, strength, stability, and a gentle innocence. They offer protection and good fortune and are considered sacred in many cultures. The mythical turtle is a creature of two elements; land and sea, and as such she reflects an ability to adapt and flourish in any environment. Those who bear the symbol of the turtle carry the responsibility of caring for, protecting, and nurturing others.
