A handsome little donkey necklace, available with, or without, his backpack. Expertly hand carved at our seaside studio, he’s intricately detailed and full of lifelike and loveable features. Just look at his alert ears, sad face, and small but sturdy legs, ready to take him on his next adventure…
Gentle, curious, super strong, and intelligent, donkeys can live up to 50 years old in the right environment. But did you know that hundreds of thousands of donkeys are slaughtered for their skins every year, driven by a demand for Ejiao, a gelatine used in Chinese medicine? Many are being mistreated and made to work until they collapse. Please avoid purchasing any products containing Ejiao.
As spirit animals, donkeys are believed to symbolise versatility, intelligence, determination, and a willingness to take on board the responsibilities and problems of others. Admirable qualities we’d all like more of! This means that donkey jewellery is an excellent choice for anyone who is carrying a heavy burden, or if you’re that inspiring somebody that other people unload onto. You definitely deserve a treat!
This donkey pendant can be cast in your choice of precious metals, so whether you fancy a silver donkey necklace, or you want to splurge on a piece of solid gold donkey jewellery, we’re on it! Sustainability is important to us; did you know all our jewellery is cast exclusively in recycled gold and silver? So you can spoil yourself (or someone else) without compromising the earth’s resources – result!
On the hunt for donkey gifts? Everyone knows someone who loves these amazing animals, and this mule necklace makes the perfect present for donkey fans. After a personalised donkey gift?

Because protecting our environment is important to us, we no longer offer gold plating. This process requires the use of many toxic chemicals. Instead, and where possible, we are using 100% recycled solid gold and silver. Better for us, better for the planet!
