The necklace has been in my family for generations. The last person who gave me the necklace was my grandma. One of her family members made it during Pearl Harbor. The amethyst represents devotion and the whip represents power. When Pearl Harbor was over that family member gave it to my grandma and my grandma gave it to me. I have had this necklace for 2 years and every time I look at it I can feel determination.
