I gave this pendant to my brother as a birthday present. It has a jointed nose so he can sniff around a bit which I love. It hangs really low so it doesnt need a clasp although I might add one if Willie wants to use the chain to keep track of his rings, which he is very good at loosing. The chain is solid silver and the face is highly polished bronze. I want one of these too and Rosie has already ordered one.
