Sterling silver tortoise pendant necklace features mountains and bronze moon with stars.  Includes an 18 inch, rhodium-plated sterling silver 1.0mm snake chain with lobster clasp.

Rhodium plated silver is sterling silver coated in rhodium to make it whiter and brighter. Silver is a softer metal, so rhodium protects it from scratches or wear. Solid silver is too soft to be fashioned into jewelry, so it contains 92.5% silver and 7.5% of other metals like copper, nickel, or a combination of the two. The traces of copper and nickel in sterling silver cause tarnishing. Adding rhodium plating prevents this from happening.

Honoring the patience, wisdom, and quiet strength of the cosmic turtle. A perfect charm for a spiritual boost, or to remind us of our strength and wisdom and to just keep swimming.

Turtle legends crop in many world cultures, from Indo-China to the Iroquis, from Egypt to Japan. And in every one, turtles are heroes in creation myths, swimming along in the cosmic waters with the world safely on her back.

There are many reasons why turtles seem likely picks. They're notorious for living long and peaceful lives, so much so they've come to symbolize the passage of time and ancient wisdom. Turtles are survivors, physically designed for anything life throws their way. And, everyone knows slow and steady wins the race.  Taking its time in all endeavors, the turtle is an excellent reminder of how to move through life with purpose. And then, there's the turtle's strength, an obvious requirement for bearing the world's burdens upon your back.

Pendant measures 17 x 20mm.
