Men's black bear carved statement necklace made with a chunky jade pendant. I forgot I had purchased this piece a few years back and tucked it in a drawer. This is heavier than the new ones I am finding today. The size is 40 x 50 mm long and it is 10mm thick in some places like the bottom of the pendant and through the carved part. It is a carving of a black bear and a cub. The pendent length is 60 total with the jump ring. The necklace length is 19 1/2 inches and it is finished with black gunmetal double link chain and a larger gunmetal lobster clasp. The meaning of the bear is a picture of tranquility but it's a symbol for warrior and power.
