The Sale frenzy is now in full swing!
And if your plastic can stand the strain, now is a good time to grab some bargains and add some unusual (but worthwhile) items to your jewellery wardrobe.
Not least of them is the The Endangered Collection range from John Lewis.
Many items are reduced to clear, saving you significant amounts.
It includes this majestic Cheeky Monkey Elephant Pendant Necklace shown above. We all know the elephant is killed for its tusks by poachers, but it is also finding its natural habitat increasingly encroached upon by civilization.
The Endangered Collection includes 14 fabulously jewel-encrusted animals, all of which top the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) endangered species lists.
Made from 100% recycled sterling silver it comes with a plain link chain. This pendant shows an African elephant, with 2 brilliant blue fairtrade sapphire eyes.
On the back is a message: ‘Stop herding me!’
Below is a pendant showing a playful gold headed langur monkey hanging upside down from its tail. With 1 brilliant blue fairtrade sapphire eye.
It has a message on the back saying: ‘One cheeky monkey!’
The gold headed langur primate’s diminishing numbers (at last count, only 105 remain on a small island in North Vietnam), make it among the worlds most threatened species.
It is again made from 100% recycled sterling silver and comes with a plain link chain.
Other styles are also available.
