"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.
