Sterling Anchor Necklace & Balboa Skull Coin

$98 $160

For this combo necklace, we paired one of our solid sterling silver anchors with a hand-engraved Panamanian balboa coin featuring a skeleton conquistador in armor on the front-facing side.

Besides the obvious theme of keeping with the coastal and nautical theme of our company, we liked the juxtaposition of the anchor and the skeleton soldier as a callback to another common Maritime motto of “Memento Mori/Memento Vivere. This is especially apt since a normal Balboa coin has a living conquistador’s profile, and the engraving process for our coins re-carves his face into a skull.

Anchor is made of solid sterling silver with "Maritime" stamped vertically down the shaft, and measures 1" wide by 1.5" tall. Balboa coin is 1" in diameter.

Beautiful Piece that Turns ****

The initial impression is that this piece is very nice. Not shiny, but it did look presentable. I made sure that it would not get wet or be exposed to product (i.e. cologne). However, the anchor started turning black. Today it looks cheap and not worth a fraction of the price I paid. Do not buy this. You will be disappointed in a few weeks.

Hi Octavio! The anchor is sterling and over time, sterling will tarnish. Thankfully it is very easy to clean! Any piece of sterling jewelry will tarnish over time so this is not a unique issue with our pendants. Best, -Ian
