This beautiful design is really unique! It was handcarved in ECUADOR from the mother of pearl shell which grows in the Pacific waters off Ecuador. The piece has the beautiful irridescent mother of pearl coloring and simple, yet superb, detailing. It comes on a lanyard, but would look great on a gold chain. The pendant is approximately 1 1/4 inches high. the lanyard 16". As each piece is hand made, details may vary slightly but not significantly.
