Soaring Manta Ray Link Necklace

$575.00$734.00

 

Remember the sea’s deep blue expanse with this sleek, luxe manta choker. The soaring Manta Ray Link Necklace is light, sculptural and a totem of grace and freedom – a little escape everyday!

Beautiful mantas are sometimes called ‘devilfish’, but their movements underwater couldn’t be farther from that description. Gliding with an unbelievable grace, these majestic creatures rule the sea. To us they represent the ultimate in expansive freedom.

 

Hāhālua (Manta Ray)

Despite their enormous size, mantas don’t eat big fish, but rather filter feed on plankton. Reef mantas, as we have in Hawaii, can attain 18 ft (distinct from the giant pacific mantas that get much bigger). Hawaiian mantas tend to stay closer to shore which partly helps to protect against sharks, while giant mantas roam the deep seas and travel enormous distances. There is photographic evidence to show that mantas have regenerative properties – much more research is needed to understand these beauties! They have the largest brains of any fish, and they reproduce slowly – sadly populations continue to decline, much due to pollution and erosion of habitat. Some estimates say they can live 50-100 years. Status: Vulnerable.
