This orangutan pendant is beautifully detailed, showing the long fur coming in streaks down the ape’s body as it swings from the trees. This hairy ‘man of the forest’ is a dainty pendant, making it an easy every day piece of jewellery. The design is carved by hand and cast sustainably in recycled sterling silver.
This necklace is an ideal gift for nature lovers, and a thoughtful present for orangutan fans.
Orangutans are highly intelligent creatures, who share 96.4% of our DNA. They are heavily threatened – listed as Critically Endangered as they are so close to extinction.
Gold chain shown is an upgraded satellite chain.
Designs are all carved by hand in Cornwall by Rosalind, before being cast in recycled precious metals. Each piece is then finished individually in order to create beautiful, animal inspired pieces that represent a true realistic likeness of our favourite creatures from around the countryside.
Precious metals can last a lifetime if treated correctly. Be sure to take off your jewellery when showering, and keep it away from lotions and potions. When you’re not wearing it, store it in the box for safe keeping, and to prevent tarnishing. A wipe with a polishing cloth can do wonders, but a light hand is recommended for plated items. I also offer a re-plating service, so please get in touch for more details.
Plated items come with ‘gold filled’ chains, which is a much thicker plating of gold – so it lasts longer – over a base metal chain. If you would prefer gold vermeil, which is gold plated sterling silver, please just ask.
