Yep, it's a monkey necklace! I am in love with "critter jewelry" but this is the first monkey item I've ever had i the shop. "George" is actually a very detailed piece....carved prehnite "leaves" sprout from the branch he's holding onto. Sapphires dot and cap both ends of the branch, and he has a pair of garnets for eyes. The entire pieces is solid sterling silver with cool accents in rose gold.
