Hippocampus historix are fascinating creatures, commonly known as the Thorny Seahorse. They mate for life, with the male seahorse giving birth. The female deposits eggs in his kangaroo-like pouch and using his prehensile tail, he clings to a piece of coral or sea grass for several weeks during gestation. Each and every morning, his wife swims by to greet him and these oceanic lovebirds perform a dance ritual, changing colour for several minutes to express their bond. Soon hundreds of fully developed baby seahorses will hatch.
The Long Seahorse Pendant has been designed with tsavorite garnet eyes adding a beautiful sea-green sparkle to this life-sized seahorse. I hope that our pendant, which celebrates this magical sea creature, will bring you happiness and enchantment. The sterling silver handcrafted Long Seahorse Pendant can be worn from day to night, hanging elegantly from a long 70cm chain. Made in Mauritius.
