A stunning and alluring necklace adorned with gold pieces and Poppy Jasper gem stones. This particular pendant piece was originally cast as an ear ornament during the Tairona period, 900AD - 1600 AD.
Two snakes with forked tongues decorate the borders with snakeskin bodies of filigree circles and woven chevron . The shedding of their skins made them a symbol of rebirth and renewal. The spiral design on the gold pieces that make up the necklace was used extensively throughout the Pre-Columbian period and was inspired by sea and land snails. The spiral is often related symbolically to the evolution of time.
Pewter is the fourth most popular metal used in jewellery, behind gold, silver, and platinum.
Because of its low melting point, our artisans are able to create safe nickel free, 24k Gold Plated jewellery with intricate detail.
24 karat gold is the ultimate gold karat – it doesn't go any higher than this.
It's the purest form and consists of 99.9% gold.
It is naturally yellow and highly valuable, but very soft and malleable.
