Sea turtle necklace features genuine faceted labradorite gemstone shell on a sterling silver body. The sea turtle hangs at a slight angle for a unique look! The faceted gemstone used for the shell gives the look of the "scutes" on a turtle's back! The labradorite flashes in tones of blue, green and teal, just like 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.
