"Almost"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The quality and speckled color are beautiful and the detailed sterling designs on the back are both artfully done and unique. The maíz shapes of each stone are very rich and indigenous in a way that just makes me smile and appreciate my culture. I am sad to have to return because I just could not get it to sit right on my little neck. An average neck would not have this problem so I still give it five stars.

"Looks great"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Not too heavy or large. Great shape that looks good with different faces. I paired it with the Mayan Elite necklace and the Uniqueness necklace and its a great match for both. These would also be a nice dark neutral all on their own for a ton of outfits.

"Like moon drip"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is so pretty. It just gives a feeling of movement, like youre squeezing out the juice from the moon and it drips into your heart. Great shape combinations and the quality is on par with the rest of her designs. I have a small neck, so I took out a link on each side. It looks great and feels like royalty. Good buy and pairs well will round or pointy earrings.

"Stunning piece"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is rich and dark and the speckling lends texture. I have a small neck, despite slightly muscular shoulders and I took out one link (16 inch necklaces are usually right for me). It fits like a choker and sits right on my collar bones in a flattering way. Deep down Im still a tomboy even though Ive grown to girly habits, so this angular design really appeals to my nature. I paired it with the Jungle Pyramid earrings of the same color and the match is perfect. I live in a warm climate near the Pacific so I wear a lot of tank tops and summer dresses. This style will put a nice edge on that. Also, great quality. This designer has received a good deal of business from me for a reason.

Best Uses

  • Gift for a strong woman
  • Jewelry a tomboy would wear
  • Edgy and unique fashion

"Matches the necklace"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

And both are gorgeous. I took two hearts out to fit my daughter. Easy to size with pliers, so I can add one back as she grows. Ill just keep them in the cute little pouch. The jewelry is high quality and professional. I have several more pieces on their way from different sets and I do not regret a thing.

"I wish I could post a picture"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is darker than in the photo, but matches the set. I bought these for my young daughter so that she could have her own set and it makes her look like a Mayan princess. I took a few links out so it would fit well around her little neck and I will put them back in as she grows. Same goes for the bracelet. We have small necks and wrists so I have to take a link out for bracelets and two for necklaces for myself. Anyway, this is the cutest set. Its classic and a rich jaguar green, but also very cute and appropriate, in my opinion, for any age. I love the pieces I have bought from Zandra. This woman makes excellent quality and beautiful styles. I have bought several pieces and I love the ones I have and cant wait to receive the rest. My grandmother would be have been starry eyed seeing my baby in her very own Mayan jade in her own size.

"After my husband died in 2017, I knew I would need to provide for my three children. I've made their education my top priority and plan to send each of them to university. I have also welcomed helpers into my workshop, and support them with fair wages," she says.

Zandra started off as a humble artisan with a strong passion. Since her start with NOVICA, she has been able to grow her workshop and achieve more than she thought possible. She is able to support her children, create jobs in her community, and has become one of the most respected artisans in her city.

Zandra lost her husband in 2017 and she is now the sole provider for her three children, Fabricio, Alejandro and Dulce. Through her jade jewelry art, she is able to support her children and increase their livelihood.

Zandra financially supports her three children's education and plans to send the three of them to university as well.
