Momo Necklace, Sterling Silver
Mythology

Momo

Promotes: Perseverance, Wisdom, Protection

The origin story of momos is one of travelers, mountains, and migration. From high in the Himalayas down to the valley of Kathmandu, caravans of merchants journeyed for months conducting business between Tibet and Nepal. Meat-filled pouches steamed over a fire were the perfect road food for the long distance, arduous excursion. Today they are made in cozy family kitchens, watched over by a wizened matriarch. Wear the momo to protect and guide you in your journey. Momos promote cross-cultural understanding, wisdom and courage.

Description

Dumplings are one of humanity’s best inventions. They are a simple but delicious food, a way to stretch few ingredients and turn humble dough into something transcendent. We like to think that all dumplings are filled with love.
 

Cast in .925 sterling silver, the momo pendant measures a little over 10 mm in diameter.

The pendant is attached to an adjustable 16-18″ sterling silver cable chain and is rhodium plated to discourage tarnishing.
