The Green Turtle necklace is handmade with multi-coloured turquoise and emerald Japanese glass and gold coated beads. It celebrates one of the ocean's largest and most endangered herbivores - the Green Turtle, which only eats plants. The necklace comes in three sizes - a choker (small), necklace (medium) and pendant (long) and each is available with three charms and, of course, the letters of the alphabet.
Personalising this beautiful piece with a friend's initials, as well as planting 10 Mangrove trees - every Green Turtle plants 10 trees and comes with a planting certificate and gift card in a fabric bag - is a wonderful gift that gives back to the planet as well as being personalised and quite unique.
If you really want to splash out there is also the Green Sea Turtle Anklet!
Charms which come with the Green Sea Turtle include:-
- the Arctic Fox (18K gold filled)
- the Sea Star (18K gold plated)
- the Turquoise Coral (18K gold filled with turquoise inlay)
The Green Sea Turtle
The Green Sea Turtle is amongst the biggest of all the many seas turtles that exist growing up to 180 kilograms (400 pounds) in weight and measuring almost 2 meters (four feet) in length.
As herbivores or plant eaters, Green Turtles play a unique roll in the oceans' ecosystems - they are the lawn mowers of the seas eating the algae and seagrass on the ocean floor which helps to keep these rich beds of nutrients healthy for the varieties of marine life which depend upon them. Seagrass and algae are not only vital sources of food, but the beds themselves are essential nurseries for a whole host of marine animals. As the populations of Green Sea Turtles diminish, we are upsetting the ocean ecosystem and in turn disrupting the ocean food chain on which billions of people depend for survival.
Green turtles are found mainly in tropical and subtropical waters. Like other sea turtles, they migrate long distances between feeding grounds and the beaches from where they hatched. Classified as endangered, green turtles are threatened by over-harvesting of their eggs, hunting of adults, being caught in fishing gear and loss of nesting beach sites.
The Green Sea Turtle is made by hand and made to order. The combinations of blue, turquoise, emerald green and gold Japanese beads are unique to each band although the style of each is the same.
The sizes of each Green Sea Turtle are:-
Choker - 34 cms (13.5 inches)
Necklace - 41 cms (16 inches)
Pendant - 46 cms (18 inches)
Each Green Sea Turtle is connected at the back with two links of 14K gold filled paper chain chain and a lobster clasp which is also 14K gold filled.
