This glorious Sea Urchin necklace makes a real statement. The segments are cast in bronze, plated in 24k gold over silver plate and set with peridots, apatites, pink tourmalines and amethysts.
Sea Urchins are members of the phylum Echinodermata that also includes starfish and sea cucumbers. They have five fold symmetry, which is called pentamerism and is easily seen in the dried shell of the urchin. They move by means of hundreds of tiny, transparent, adhesive “tube” feet and sometimes the most visible sign of life is the spines. The spines serve to protect the urchin from predators. Sea urchin “roe” is traditionally considered an aphrodisiac and is consumed either raw or briefly cooked.
