Polar Bear Necklace
Sustainably & Ethically Handmade
The Polar Bear Necklace is handmade by artisans using glass and gold plated beads and a freshwater pearl with 14K gold plated clasp and fittings. The extension chain with our Leopard logo are both gold plated!
The necklace measures 38 cm (15 inches) with a 5 cm (2 inch) extension chain with a total length of up to 43 cm (17 inches).
Gift packaging - A Gift that gives back
Every band comes in its own drawstring fabric pouch together with a planting certificate for your 10 trees. You address your certificate personally (by hand) which explains how your trees combat global warming to help people and animals alike. There is also a gift card on which you can write a personal message, the back of which tells you all about The Great Barrier Reef and why it is disappearing before our eyes.
Your Necklace & care
The tempered glass beads will hold their colours in water although they should not be exposed to perfumes, chemicals, cosmetics and the like. The 24K gold plated beads should be treated like all gold jewellery (see care guide).
Shipments are processed within 2 business days. Options for shipping domestically and internationally are shown at checkout and all shipments are tracked and your tracking number will be sent by email confirming posting of your order.
Polar Bears are the largest bears in the world and even though they are called 'Polar' they only live at the North Pole in the Arctic. In fact, their name really means 'sea bear' as they live in the sea. They are the only bear to live at sea, not on land, which is odd as it's how we think of fish rather than bears - living in the sea. Guess what - with the seas warming up, the ice is melting and Polar bears are spending more and more time on land. As their habitat recedes, so their ability to survive diminishes and they are now endangered as a species.
There are only 26,500 Polar Bears left! Our white necklace with gold bands is the Polar Bear. Oh, by the way, Polar Bears have blue tongues!
