Location: K.O. Shop, Manipal, Karnataka, India; Material: Amethyst & Silver
This necklace was probably my last purchase out of my many trips to K.O. Shop in Manipal, where I was studying in India. I saved it for last because it was the most expensive: $70 due to the fact that there is a lot of silver on it. One of the reasons I only buy pendants (other than that they are my preferred personal style) and put them on my own chain/rope is because it is cheaper that way. I usually buy a silver/semi-precious pendant and buy a large spool of leather chain at Michael’s or AC Moore. Anyway, this one was more expensive because of its silver chain, but I loved it so much that I decided to go for the splurge and purchase it. It is particularly meaningful to me because it is my birthstone, and a stone I love, amethyst!
