Item description:

"Each and every one of us is born with a clean heart. Our babies know nothing about hate or racism. But soon they begin to learn – and only from us. We keep racism alive. We pass it on to our children. We owe it to our children to help them keep their clean start."- Ruby Nell Bridges Hall. This one of a kind heart necklace was hand carved and cast in honor of Ruby Bridges, the first Black child to enter an integrated school system. Made from rosy red bronze and set with rubies and a rose cut garnet, this piece features bridge motifs and her initials, which serendipitously form the bindrune for peace. This pendant is bold and substantial, measuring 2.25"X2" and comes on a sturdy 20" 18k rose gold fill snake chain.
