Description
When Europeans first visited the New World, they brought back tales of El Dorado, a jungle city built of shining gold, whose citizens went about arrayed in precious metals and gems. A necklace such as this, recreating the ancient Sinu style, may have been the inspiration for those legends. The person lucky enough to wear it today is destined to become legendary as well. - (FJ.3023)
