"Umbo" in Swahili means "shape," and this subtle statement piece was inspired by the myriad of shapes we encounter in everyday life. A vibrantly-colored rectangular charm made of recycled glass hangs on a timeless 24k-gold-plated brass chain. The charm even has a clasp so you can easily take it on or off on the chains of your choice for a more customized look. Pendant: 1.61l x 0.43w x 0.24"d Chain: 19"l
