I made this necklace as a special order for a male chocolatier. I like it so much that I decided to offer it to everyone. Connected only on one side and dangling from a black cotton cord, it has a more masculine look than my all-silver theobromine necklace.Theobromine is a mild stimulant related to caffeine that makes up about 2% of cacao beans. It’s thought to elevate mood by causing the release of feel-good neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine. The name theobromine is derived from Greek words, meaning "food of the gods." For the health benefits from the flavonoids and antioxidants in chocolate, choose the darkest varieties. Yum!The pendant is made from quality, recycled/reclaimed sterling silver, is about 1.5 inches long, and is attached to a 20 inch black cotton cord that closes with a sterling silver lobster clasp. If you would like a different length cord, please let me know!Each is packaged in a cute, recycled gift box and includes an informational tag about theobromine.
