Kei Shigenaga Sterling Silver & 18k Gold Necklace & Pendants- Ryu


The Ryu necklace was inspired by two Japanese carps swimming together. The ancient Japanese tale says a carp swims upstream to become a dragon, which is known as "ryu" in Japanese, hence the name of the necklace. Melted 18k gold is poured into the two scars on the carps' heads, which tells the story of the carp trying its best to chase its dream to become a dragon. The design is a homage to traditional Japanese Kintsugi which is an artistic method to repair broken pottery with gold, to give the crack a new life. The chain is finished with a branded solid 18k yellow gold "tag".
