Exquisit Humpback Whale Necklace!!!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: HAWAIIAN WHALE CARVED BONE PENDANT NECKLACE (Apparel)
THIS IS THE BEST HUMPBACK WHALE NECKLACE! I LOVE it too much! I usually buy sterling silver or silver tone, and I've never bought bone pendants before. I didn't know they are made with such detail and carved so beautiful and smooth! Wow! The Hawaiians and New Zealanders really know how to carve out of bone! I can't beleive it! When I saw this, I don't care for silver anymore! This is not just beautiful, and detailed, but the size and quality is extraordinary! With silver, you pay a lot. The price has sky-rocketed since years ago, and now you get very small pieces most of the time that are quite thin. With the bone neckace, the bone is very thick, and a solid piece. Not like in a lot of silver pieces where the back side is hollowed out. This is solid bone! Not very heavy but the quality is excellent. Also the pendant is larger than you get with real silver. I can't get over how smooth they polish it! I can't believe it is made of bone...looks like resin or plastic but you can see if you look closely that yes, it is 100% genuine bone. Not plastic. And the color is is off-white or cream to white. If you love white, than you would love this. And white goes with anything. Some higher quality bone pendants I've seen that cost more are carved even on the backside, creating a more realistically detailed and 3D look. This one is just solid flat on the back but maybe it is better. I've heard that when worn many times, over time by it touching your skin, your natural bodies oils start turning the pendant a golden color which makes the pendant a one of a kind color, which is pretty and special. Then no two pendants would be alike. That's what's so unique about this. It kind of grows into your own body chemistry taking on its own personality in a way. This pendant is carved so skillfully, and great for the price. It costs much less than some other sellers so here it is worth the price, much more worth it! I would get it before it's gone. It measures 1 1/2 inches wide by about an inch tall! A great size! I love it's smoothness and feel, and it's 3 dimensional look. It's carved so realistic! Excellent carved! It already comes ready made on a twisted beigh colored cord that is adjustable by moving the bone bead on it, so you can make it any length you want. A choker or longer. I like wearing it like a choker or close to it...it looks the best. I love this so much that I'm ordering more bone pendants for myself and gifts for others too. I love whales and dolphins the most and this whale is so perfect for me! I think I'll wear it often. I love sea life, so now I need a dolphin, a manta ray, or what ever I can find out there. Forget about silver, it's like a waste of money. Bone pendants are the best! I'm hooked!
