As a kid, if you ever made a drawing of a fish or colored one, you may have felt that scales were one of the fish's most defining features – and also one of the most decorative and fun too. So in a way, this necklace picks up where a kid's drawing leaves off, only in a slightly more sophisticated way.
A diamond-shaped grid of tiny raised silver scale-like studs is infilled with round clear cubic zirconia crystals. The combination of the two materials on the fish's rounded body creates a very finely textured skin that shimmers and sparkles with tiny pinpoints of light.
Balancing out the richness of the body, the fish's head is simply polished and given the friendly features of a smiling mouth and a big round blue eye of spinel. (Spinel is a naturally occurring crystal.)
It's worth pointing out too that the hanger is decorated to match the scales.
