Intricate yet sleek as a stingray, this Lupe Stingray Barb Necklace Small is a wonderfully simple luxury. Petite yet strong, these barbs represent a calm independence and confidence – stingrays are unassuming and non-aggressive, but get pushy with one and it can defend itself with the best of them!


Lupe – Hawaiian Broad Stingray

The Hawaiian broad stingray is a gentle, non-aggressive ray endemic to Hawai‘i. Most stingrays have one or more barbed stingers on their tail that can deliver powerful neurotoxins. These are used exclusively in self-defense. The stinger may reach a length around 35 cm (14 in), and their tails are twice the length of their bodies. Once broken off, the stingers grow back fairly quickly. Their Hawaiian name is ‘lupe’ which translates to ‘kite’, named for their diamond shaped bodies. These shy creatures prefer sandy bottoms at least 15m to over 300m deep, and we usually find them buried in the sand.
