What is the blue green color around the roots? There is an inlay of iridescent blue shell behind the roots, to give a brilliant pop of color at the tree's base.
This pendant looks so delicate. Is it likely to bend or break when I wear it? Not at all. Like any well-designed piece of silver jewelry, it is surprisingly sturdy. Although the tree itself has an open and airy filigree pattern, the edges of the teardrop are more substantial. The teardrop actually raises the tree design just a bit so that it almost appears to float in midair.
