Jewel of the day: Marc Alary Ebony Elephant Pendant
Elephants with their trunks up are supposed to be lucky talismans. This elephant by Marc Alary is made of ebony and a chain runs through the closed trunk of the elephant (definitely pointing skyward, however).
Alary notes, “The elephant is a bold demonstration of the intensity and strength that exists in the animal kingdom. The manifestation of majesty and elegance provides an allure unique only to the king of the Savannah. This Ebony Elephant Pendant adds simplicity to any look, as it hangs stoically from its trunk.”
The ebony cutout is affixed to an 18k gold plate weighing 1.9 grams, and there is a .1 carat diamond “eye.” It sells for USD $1.090. (The chain appears to be sold separately.)
