Elephant necklace

My object is a necklace. The necklace has a gold chain with a pendant of ivory, an elephant with ruby eyes and gold clothing. Its tusks, feet and tail are also made of gold.
It is special to me because it was given to me by my grandmother’s best friend. When she passed away my grandmother told me her friend had told her I was to have it.
It was special to me because she was also like my grandmother and it is very valuable. I will treasure it forever.
