Watch your step around this wild alligator charm… There is just no telling what this wily beast will do next!
Alligators are powerful creatures in real life, so it’s no wonder that their lore is equally powerful. They are symbols of wisdom and the keepers of knowledge. These are not mild-mannered librarians, though. They are voracious! In the Aztec origin myth, a primordial sea monster depicted as a crocodile with powerful jaws at every joint devoured each new thing that the Gods made. Finally, the Gods drew together all of their strength to battle the great beast. The pulled him apart, releasing the universe from within him, and creating the earth and heavens from his body.
This wild alligator charm measures approximately 20 mm long. That translates to .75 inches at the bail and it weighs 2.5 grams. This piece is marked to confirm .925 silver content. It was polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips were used.
