Details

Hanzi are characters used in Chinese writing. As early as the sixth century A.D., many of these characters began to be simplified and adopted into Japanese writing, where they're known as kanji, a term that is more widely used in the West. Artisans in Yiwu, China, create these pendants by using sterling silver and the lost-wax casting method. Each character emulates the sweeping brushstrokes of traditional calligraphy. Choose based on birth month, favorite color, or simply the symbol that resonates with you most.

"A Warning ???????"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I would like to warn potential buyers as a fluent speaker of Japanese that the meanings are not correct and the descriptions in the catalogue are not aligned with the image. December is the only correctly described, defined, and placed month. I especially warn against the second to last, which is labeled as November in the catalogue and has peridot (so probably intended as August and therefore supposedly Purity) because the character ? literally means cheap. Please be careful when buying items with characters you cannot read, especially as a gift. This could lead to serious embarrassment for all involved.

"Not What I Expected from Nat Geo"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This necklace was to be a present for my son. I was so disappointed in the quality that I returned it. I often shop National Geographic and thought the poor quality is not the norm for Nat Geo. I also saw the same product offered by another company. One of the reasons I shop Nat Geo is for the uniqueness of your merchandise. I was sorely disappointed.

"MYSTERIOUS KANJI PENDANT"

I purchased this for everyday wear, it goes with all outfits. I have my favorite green stone as my birthstone, emerald and the charm that I purchased is the closest I could get. It is certainly charming.

"Beautiful!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I wanted this necklace for a long time before I was finally able to purchase it. It is absolutely gorgeous! The sapphires are not what were used to from a jewelry store. These are raw. They are not sparkly, but are somewhat cloudy. Having said that, it is amazing how much they catch the light and SPARKLE!! I have a LOT of jewelry... fine, handmade, costume.... This is my Favorite piece!! I LOVE this necklace!! Buy it for yourself...you will not regret it??

"Beautifully imperfect"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a piece that I do love. I suspect it will be a favorite necklace. Ethnic-even has a tribal feel that has been made modern. Different than the picture as the saphires are farther apart. Lays differently. But feminine and colorful and each gem has unique markings. Use your half off stamp here. Bit overpriced. Yet I would never trade it. NEAT.
