Untill you have faced off one of these under water, you cannot understand the quiet aloof confidence they posess. There are many arms to the world of the octopus, these happen to carry .58cts of SI Belgian cut diamonds along with two 3mm emerald eyes. A chain or cable up 2.5mm passes through the head for necklace wearing. About 14gms Allow 2-3 weeks, yellow in stock Just under 1.5" tall and 1" wide or 32mm
Octopus - always thought of as sinister creatures, they don't really deserve that reputation. That's why we have octopus jewelry!
Class Cephalopoda The octopus is secretive, can change it's color in an instant and move by jet propulsion. Very much like a squid. They actually can bite if provoked with a beak that will inflict a nasty wound. Usually they hide during the day and come out at night to forage for food.
If you see one diving, they are very, very cool, although a little scary. I treat them with respect and just love to watch octopod and squid move. Believe it or not, they are in the mollusk family. The big ones in the Pacific get to sixteen feet! That is the body and one arm. So with the body in the middle and the arms outstretched it could be over thirty feet across! Keep your octopus jewelry hidden from them. Perhaps this is one of the ones from Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea!
Octopi do not have a nose as sharks and other fish do. Octopus are actually mollusks. On their eight arms, they have two rows of suckers that help them grab and stick onto things. On these suckers are cells that sense chemicals. These cells both smell what is in the water and taste what the tentacles touch. Keep them off a' me!
