The centerpiece pendant features a fish and palm tree made of a light silver colored metal that are engraved with detail. Other links besides the fish and palm trees also have turtles and boats. The shell has been heated up to inlay the metal so when cooled it seals the pieces in place. Hand made by indigenous people who used available resources in the islands to create this set in the early-mid 20th century to help support their families. This jewelry became popular tourist souvenirs for travelers to the islands, especially the South Seas; Fiji, Tahiti and Seychelles. The necklace consists of 7 carved pieces made of the same variegated turtle shell and linked with silver-color wire links. The necklace length is approx. 19", and it weighs 8.7 grams. The bracelet measures 7" long, 3/4" wide and weighs 5.2 grams. Very nice old set in good condition overall, notice the bracelet has the bottom half of one of the palm trees missing from the inlay. I considered using a few pieces from the bracelet to create earrings but in the end decided that the missing piece though unfortunate does not detract when wearing. Has simple hand made clasps. Lovely set!
