This is a 3" tall wooden Egyptian ankh symbol on a leather necklace. The leather necklace is adjustable -- just pull on one of the strands to adjust to your desired size. Can be worn long like a sweater necklace or shorter near the neck. The ankh is fairly large, measuring 3" tall and 1.5" wide. There are three tones to the wood: black, dark brown, and light brown/tan. (Note: the light brown/tan looks yellow in the product photo, but it is not yellow. It is tan.)  Each comes brand new with tag. 
      The Ankh is known as key of life, the key of the Nile or crux ansata (Latin meaning "cross with a handle").  It was the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic character that read "eternal life." Egyptian gods are often portrayed carrying it by its loop, or bearing one in each hand, arms crossed over their chest.
        How to adjust the necklace size
          When you first receive the necklace, it may seem too short to pull over your head. Don't worry -- you can extend it to a very long length, about 18" long, if you choose. If you want it to fall low on a sweater, it will adjust to that long length. If you want to wear it shorter, closer to your neck, you can do that, too. To adjust, pull on one of the strings and you will be able to slide it and adjust to the size of your choice. If you have never worn an adjustable necklace like this, it is easy to adjust - just slide the rope/string and check to see what is the right length for you.
