A stunning Modernist Sterling Silver Indalo Man Pendant Necklace (also known as Almeria Man or El Indalo), which can also be made as a keyring.
This is our simplified and modernised re-make of our popular classic version of the Indalo Man (which you can see here).
He can also be made in 9ct Gold – please ask me for a price, as gold prices fluctuate. 9ct (karat) Gold is an English gold fineness standard. It has a composition of 37.5% gold. You can see our classic Indalo Man in 9ct Gold here.
A unique gift for your loved one, or yourself, to relive memories of your time in Spain.
The Indalo Man is a representation of a cave painting found in the Los Vélez area of the province of Almeria (which is in the region of Andalucia, Southern Spain). The cave painting was officially discovered in 1868 and made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998. The cave paintings found are believed to be at least 4,500 years old and the Indalo Man is believed to be a representation of a prehistoric God who holds a Rainbow with open arms.
The Indalo Man is believed to bring good luck, health and love to those who own one and it is customary in the region of Almeria to paint the Indalo symbol on the front of houses and businesses to protect them from evil! The Indalo Man is an important symbol across the Region of Andalucia.
My modernist Indalo Man is hand-crafted from 2mm (0.08″) thick sterling silver rod, measuring approximately 4cm (1.57″) at his widest point and 4cm (1.57″) long and we think he’s very beautiful as well as cute!
He hangs from either:
- a sterling silver chain – length and type of your choice (a sterling silver trace chain is shown in the pictures)
- or we can make him as a keyring (see pictures – you can choose a classic round keyring, or a heart keyring; they are stamped 925).
You can choose to have the Indalo Man in a highly polished, shiny, finish or in a matt satin finish, please choose when purchasing.
The total weight of El Indalo Man is approximately 5gm without the chain or keyring .
As the Indalo Man is made to order you will receive a totally unique piece of special jewellery. He may not be exactly the same as those in the picture but he will be very similar and unique!
A perfect gift for those who love good-luck symbols, adore Spain, or anyone who likes an unusual silver pendant.
He will be posted to you by recorded delivery from Spain.
