HURLEY SEAHORSE PENDANT 18ct Gold Vermeil | Tanzanites
The unique nature of the seahorse means that is has a fairly rich symbolic history across a variety of cultures, from Ancient Greece to China. Believed to be a symbol of strength and power, but also of patience and contentment the seahorse has long been considered a good luck talisman for sailors.
A name of Irish origin, Hurley means ‘sea tide’. English actress and model Elizabeth Hurley also owns one of our Hurley Seahorse Pendants, so the name is particularly appropriate.
The Wild & Fine range of seahorses is created using antique specimens from a private natural history collection, which were returned in pristine condition once Jess had finished with them. Any gemstones used have been ethically sourced.

Designated as a birthstone for December by the American Gem Association in 2002, tanzanite is a beautiful violet-blue gemstone, found only in Tanzania in central Africa. It was made popular internationally by Tiffany and Co. in the 1970s, though Masai tribes people had long known of its existence.
Tanzanian mothers are traditionally given tanzanite to wear during childbirth, because the Masai believed the stone could bring health and a long life to babies.
The Hurley Seahorse Pendant is beautifully presented on an 18” spiga chain in Plastic Free Wild & Fine branded packaging
