Great Elephant Necklace

In Africa, the interpretations and meanings of elephants are almost similar to the ones found in Asian culture. They are regarded as symbols of size, strength, stamina, longevity, and loyalty. All symbolize wisdom and strength. In African tales, the elephant is portrayed as the wise and calm chieftain, who settles disputes between other forest animals.
Genuine vintage African coin (Rhodesia is now known as Zimbabwe) turquoise rivet in the center, antique copper chain, 28" long, nickel-free, lead-free, lobster claw clasp.
Necklace comes packaged with the above quote in a muslin, drawstring bag.
