The sun has a scarlet red centre with a golden spiral (made of strong cardboard), and golden rays (made of paper beads) . The sun pendant is attached to a string of golden paper beads, adding to the richness and elegance.

The necklace has a naturally oxidized sterling silver hook for closure.

Christina Maxwell

The necklace is exactly what I was looking for in a first anniversary present for my wife. That the seller can create something so beautiful (and sturdy) out of paper is amazing. The seller was also extremely communicative and attentive. Highly recommended.

I recently bought these earrings. It is really so hard to believe that they are created out of paper waste given its flawless finish and design😍😍😍. A big shout- out to the founder of Papermelon, Devi Chand, who single-handedly created this beautiful piece👏👏👏.

I loved how beautifully the earrings were packed and delivered to me. I believe, more than a product, it’s the story behind it that matters. Papermelon understands the concept well and presents it just the right way.

This is a really neat pendant. Got it as a birthday gift for my niece. I think she’ll love it. Very well made and sent in a cute gift box. Packaged well and arrived in perfect condition. It only took 15 days to get from India to the east coast of the US. I don’t think that is bad at all. It is also nice that this is an adjustable necklace. Very unique!!

I was so excited to open this beautiful package with lovely stamps from India. The packaging was as meticulously crafted as the necklace itself. The photos are accurate to what I received- I wish I had measured myself and requested an inch of the length to be taken off. I wouldn’t dare do it now because I love the delicate fastener. I’m seriously considering the earrings now.
