"A marvelous pendant, very well designed and made. "

An excellent choice, especially for anyone who wants a distinctive item to wear and who may be lovers of animals generally or of nature itself. I bought this elephant pendant necklace for my daughter in law for a Christmas holiday present. Highly recommendable in my opinion.

"Beautifully carved necklace. "

I love my new necklace. The carving of the elephant is exquisite. The length is just right. It weighs nothing so I don?t know I?m wearing it. Elephants and India are close to my heart psychologically and now physically. Thank you.

My daughter is proudly wearing her ""Mughal 'Enchantress"" necklace and a set of bracelets that I gave her for Christmas. Another beautiful work of art from a very talented artisan. Keep up the fine work, I'm sure I will be purchasing more in the future.
