The necklace comes with a gift box that is great for giving and storage for years to come. The necklace also comes with an information card that states the following:
These annuals prefer cool weather and mature early. The “peas” inside the pod are considered berries by botanists. Common folklore regarding peas is that if you count the number of peas in a pod the crop will fail. Pennsylvanian Germans always planted peas under the sign of Gemini, hoping to get two for one and double pods. Hand patinaed bronze or 14kt gold with fresh water pearls. Made in the USA.
