This cute whale charm has been inlaid with Paua shell which gives it a lovely shiny effect when it catches the light.
Paua shell is well known for its gorgeous purple, blue and green colourings. The shell is unique to New Zealand's coastlines and is popular with jewellery makers and often referred to as the Sea Opal. The Paua Shell is sustainable sourced.
The pendant measures 25mm and hangs on an 18" chain. The jewellery is plated with rhodium amalgam which is hard wearing and hypoallergenic. The base metal for the pendant is zinc and the base metal for the chain is brass.
The necklace come in a turquoise Tide Jewellery presentation box, making it ideal as a gift.
