Legend has it that if Benjamin Franklin had his way, right now you'd be looking at a turkey.
Thankfully, choosing our national bird wasn't only Ben's decision. Though Franklin described the wild turkey as "respectable" and courageous, Congress had a different idea when they designed the Great Seal in 1782. As the official symbol of the United States, one bird soared high above the rest: the bald eagle.
Our Liberty Eagle Necklace captures the power and pride of this gleaming American icon. The eagle pendant is crafted from lustrous, yellow gold-finished .925 sterling silver. The dramatic, mid-flight pose showcases the intricate details of the wings. Clasped in its talons is a sparkling, lab-created DiamondAura® round that blazes with even more fire than a natural mined diamond. The entire pendant hangs from an 18" gold-finished sterling chain and secures with a spring-ring clasp. This necklace is an elegant and stylish symbol of freedom that lets the whole world know you're proud to be an American.
