Manatee Necklace


Ahoy there ocean life lovers! This adorable handmade manatee necklace is one for you. Every curve and contour of these gentle sea giants is perfectly captured on our highly detailed manatee charm. From the sweet little manatee face, smiling wisely at you, to the powerful body, dinky flippers, and large paddle-shaped tail that propels the manatee through the water - there are so many features to fall for on this sea cow necklace. Each piece of our manatee jewellery is handmade to order from recycled precious metals with expert craftsmanship and attention to detail. Whether you opt for a sterling silver manatee charm, or a gold manatee necklace, buying one of our pieces guarantees each piece is a true one-off, made just for you.

The first recorded sighting of a manatee was in 1492, when Christopher Colombus spotted one and thought it was a mermaid! Since then, marine biologists have learned a lot about these majestic mammals. Just as intelligent as dolphins, they generally travel at a laid-back 5 mph, watching the world float by. A super hungry species, manatees often munch through 10-15% of their body weight in food in a day - making this the most perfect of manatee gifts for anyone who appreciates their food as much as these guys do!

As a spirit animal, manatees symbolise peace, tranquility, and taking things slow but steady. So the manatee pendant is an excellent choice if you need a gentle reminder to take a step back from the stresses of daily life. You could also wear this sea creature charm so you don't forget there's no need to rush through life to make progress - slowing down and carefully considering your next move can be just as effective.

Manatee's conservation status is currently 'threatened', but many scientists and environmentalists argue it should be 'endangered' due to the threats manatees face from habitat loss, pollution, and irresponsible fishing practices. In 2022, over 2000 manatees were killed in Florida (traditionally a manatee haven) when water pollution killed the seagrass they feed on. You can help safeguard the future of the manatee by not eating fish, and supporting charities such as Save the Manatee Club, which rescue and rehabilitate manatees in the US.
