"This pendant is inspired by the beautiful forests in my country, and I hope it becomes a reminder of the care and love that we must have toward our natural environment," confides Pablo Roquel. He carves the jade pendant by hand in the shape of a poplar leaf and details it with sterling silver. For the ancient Maya, jade was a sacred gem reserved for their deities and royalty.

"Unique"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I like this pendent for its uniqueness. It has a good weight on it. I do wish the carvings would be a bit deeper uniformly. The carvings was done faintly on mine when I received it and despite washing with soap and water, it didnt turn up better either.

Beautiful earrings that are a good size to be noticed, but not overwhelming or heavy. Some of my favorite go-tos as they match everything,
