No pictures can do this fine piece of art justice. I had forgotten how beautiful Koa wood is, the engraved silver just heightens the power to the looks. All and All, I am beyond pleased.
We bought a nice deep brown round leather necklace with clasp and the pendent is perfect size.
I bought this for my boyfriend about a year ago and let me tell you, He wears it everyday! He even freaks out if it's not in the right place when he's not wearing it. He loves it and it became apart of him.
My 21 year old Grandson loves this unique pendant. It is even more beautiful in person. It was purchased to memorialize our family vacation to Kona. Mahalo
