Yup, a turtle! I've always had a thing for turtles. And I have a thing for vintage jewelry. And a thing for emeralds. So when I saw this guy get listed on eBay I knew I had to have him. I've always kept an eye out for cute turtle things but nothing ever really spoke to me. This fellow was just perfect! He is in 14k with an emerald shell, ruby eyes, and diamond flippers. I feel like he is big enough to be noticed but not too big. And I was pleasantly surprised that the emeralds have a nice glow considering I didn't pay that much for him. Just love my new turtle pendant!

He is adorable! Do you plan on naming him?

It looks great on your neck. As you said, the size is just right and the green really pops.

Thank you! And my kids named him Sam! I call him Sammy in my head although my older boy insists that he is just Sam :D

OMG I love him! I think the turtle design is very nice, and the emeralds look green and glowy. I just love a PS member who goes off the beaten path to find something like this. :appl:

Thank you all again! I love wearing Sammy out and have had several people comment on him :) Now I just need to find a slightly longer chain so he can quit borrowing my diamond pendant's chain :)
