Niho Mano Necklace (nee ho mah no) - Shark Tooth
The shark tooth necklace is a trendy Boho fashion statement. Mano (pronounced MAH-no) is the Hawaiian word for shark. In the Hawaiian culture, sharks are the embodiment of gods, family deities called 'aumakua. In Hawaiian, 'aumakua is defined as a benevolent guardian spirit or family protector. Shark teeth have long been recognized as a symbol of protection. The ancient Hawaiians wore shark tooth jewelry to keep any sea dangers at bay. This is based a myth of a young Hawaiian warrior who emerged from a battle with a sea god, victorious, and wearing a shark tooth necklace. Ever since, it’s believed that these teeth prevent shark attacks. Wear this summer necklace on your next vacation to keep you safe while you tan ;)
You can customize this beach necklace to suit your personal style and budget with your choice of sterling silver, 14k gold filled, 14k rose gold filled, rose gold plated, gold plated, or silver plated material.

As with all handmade jewelry, there will be slight variations in color, size, and shape as this minimalist necklace is individually handcrafted and designed. The little shark tooth is real and natural, so no two pieces are identical, and the shape may vary from the one pictured. Every shark tooth, bead, pearl and semi-precious gemstone is different, and each has its own unique combination of pattern and color that can vary.
