The Ukrainian Alligator

As a mother I am heart broken by what is happening to families in Ukraine, especially children Now more than ever the people of Ukraine need our love and support Inspired by the symbolic strength of my fearless alligator together with the colours of the Ukrainian flag, I have designed this special piece

The body of the Alligator is crafted from specially sourced gemstones The blue topaz is an empathic stone associated with compassion and communication, building bridges between people The yellow citrine strengthens our endurance and represents the joy and peace we all long for

Intricately carved and hand-crafted to replicate an alligator’s body in miniature This earring is designed in 18k yellow gold with the alligator’s mouth acting as the earrings’ closing bite mechanism to snap onto the ear With blue topaz and yellow citrine eyes, the tail on the alligator also gently moves A single earring can also double as a pendant
