Details

This intriguing pendant necklace is from Yan Fredy Bolivia in Peru. The necklace features an oval sterling silver pendant with the chakana in high relief. The chakana, or Inca cross, is a stepped cross that represents the three levels of existence--Hana Pacha, the upper world inhabited by the gods; Kay Pacha, the world of daily existence; and Ukhu or Urin Pacha, the underworld belonging to the spirits of the dead. The pendant centers a black leather cord.

"Stand in for a wedding band!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Like many people, my weight had fluctuated in the last few years, and I was tired of getting my real wedding band re-sized all the time. I eventually went without a ring for a few months, and my husband was not pleased! (Whoops!) I bought this ring as a stand in, for my wedding band and I love it! Its so light weight and it stands up to heavy use. Im not gentle on my jewelry, and this ring has been great. Its nice and shiny too. The slight texture makes it interesting.

"Wonderful piece"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a luscious ring. I bought it as a gift to self for my birthday and just opened up the box. The stone is large and rich in color, and beautifully cut and polished. The silver setting is simple but elegant. Very pleased with this unusual piece. I will certainly enjoy wearing it.

These pearl earrings make a nice statement due to their size and quality. Can be written with jeans or that little black dress.
