This pretty 15 ct gold late Victorian natural seed pearl buckle is in great condition and once belonged to someone's grandmother. It can be worn so many ways. Perhaps this can be a little reminder of the one you love, or maybe you are obsessed with hearts like me.
The beautiful antique buckle is now sold.
The ocean is what makes our planet habitable for all life and we should make a conscious effort to protect it. The new caretaker has chosen her charity portion to go to @surfrider. They are a foundation with a mission to protect our oceans. Please hop over to visit their site to see how you can get involved!
I found some really good tips from @natgeo on things you can do immediately to reduce our negative impact on our oceans:
"1. Use Fewer Plastic Products
Plastics that end up as ocean debris contribute to habitat destruction and entangle and kill tens of thousands of marine animals each year. To limit your impact, carry a reusable water bottle, store food in nondisposable containers, bring your own cloth tote or other reusable bag when shopping, and recycle whenever possible."
2. Help Take Care of the Beach
Whether you enjoy diving, surfing, or relaxing on the beach, always clean up after yourself. Explore and appreciate the ocean without interfering with wildlife or removing rocks and coral. Go even further by encouraging others to respect the marine environment or by participating in local beach cleanups.
3. Don't Purchase Items That Exploit Marine Life
Certain products contribute to the harming of fragile coral reefs and marine populations. Avoid purchasing items such as coral jewelry, tortoiseshell hair accessories (made from hawksbill turtles), and shark products.
