The Marquesas Necklace
This is a very beautiful sterling silver turtle necklace. It measures 7/8” long from the top of the jump ring, an 3/4" wide and is solid sterling silver. This pendant comes on a 1.2mm sterling silver snake chain.
This necklace is named for the Marquesas Keys, located roughly 20 miles off the coast of Key West. We spend a lot of time in Key West and I was even born and partially raised there. Around 10 years ago we rescued a sea turtle who had a version of turtle pneumonia. There is a turtle hospital up the Keys who came and picked him up in a little turtle ambulance and he was rehabbed and released about 8 months later on July 4th. $5 from the purchase of this necklace will be donated to that turtle hospital which continues to rescue, rehabilitate and release turtles around the Keys and houses turtles who cannot be released back into the wild.
