Handcrafted of solid sterling silver with 14-kt.-gold filled knots, this piece is crafted to resemble the originals that were woven from African elephant hair. The necklace's legend dates back more than 1,200 years, and it was believed that wearing one would bring strength and good fortune, while also ensuring the wearer was protected from sickness, harm and other misfortunes. The four knots symbolize sun, wind, fire and water, and the four strands running through them represent the seasons of the year. With the clasp open you can slide the knots and make it larger or smaller. Pendant sold seperately.
