I bought it for a friend who is a turtle lover and she loved it! It?s well made and after hearing the story behind it, I find it even more beautiful and meaningful. Great craftsmanship!! I also loved that it came in a beautiful ethnic cloth pouch with a personal note from NOVICA Bali & Java. Great touch!
I am wearing this beautiful treasure for only the second time. Today I have already received two compliments and inquiries as to where I got it. Of course, I tell them about Novica and their relationship with National Geographic. On a recent trip to South Africa, I was honored to be able to ride on Dharma, the elephant! She was glorious! She glided around the rink. It is not a bumpy ride at all. I want to ride one again on my next visit, if I can! Such beautiful creatures. How the artisan captured the beauty in the unique wood. I love this necklace. It will remain a favorite. Thank you, Novica.
This lovely necklace is finely crafted and nicely light weight to wear. It is pretty and interesting to look at.
