History in goro’s
Feather Pendant is the signature motif of goro's. The fusion of sensitivity and powerfulness is portrayed in the carving. The Feather Pendant is filled with the passion of the craftsman and its spiritual energy.
It represents the feather of a bald eagle. In the early days, Goro Takahashi, the founder of goro's, was granted the title of "Yellow Eagle" from the Native American Lakota tribe. This story is the origin of where the eagle's feather later became a design motif of the Feather Pendant at goro's.
The eagle's feather has been considered holy that delivers people's wishes, hope, and prayer to God among Native Americans. As Goro's faith and admiration for the living style of Lakota is strong, in later days, he came to feel that he wanted to carry around an actual feather of an eagle. When he found it was not practical, Goro decided to make it real as a form of crafted silver pendant.
In the Native American culture, the eagle is a symbol of "Friendship and Peace." Along with this story, Goro gave his self-crafted Feather Pendants to his important friends who are leaving to travel. He did this with his wish to travel together with his friends. This story leads to the symbolic goro's fans' behavior of traveling with their goro's items and taking photos of their travel.
At DELTAone, goro's Feather Pendant can be classified by its sizes and generations. There are four different sizes; small (S), medium (M), large (L), and extra-large (XL). Only Heart Wheel Feather, SV Feather, and All Gold Feather have sizes in S/M/L. Other types of Feathers have XL size only.
There was a significant update of Feather Pendant around 2013, and goro's changed the shape of the pendant hole. While the old version was thin-shaped, which only accepts Small Cornered Chain, the pendant hole was widened to accept all types of Chains that goro's offers in the new version. We classify into New Design and Old Design based on the pendant hole's shape. Notably, this classification only applies to XL Feathers.
Speaking of XL Feathers, except for the Gold Tip Feather, all types are based on the Plain Feather. Ornaments are attached to the base Feather by soldering. There are different types of decorations with Feathers, including Metal, Heart Top, Claws, Turquoise, Rope; each has its special meanings related to the Native American culture.
Q: Which Feather should I buy first?
A: You can start with any Feather. The most popular one is Gold Top Feather and Gold Top Gold Rope Turquoise Feather among XL Feathers. Heart Wheel Feather is selected frequently at the beginning of goro's journey.
Q: What's the best way to maintain pendants?
A: We say maintenance is not necessary for all goro's items. By using, owners can enjoy the aging of items. Especially for silvers, the sulfuration of silver produces a beautiful contrast with the parts made from Gold.
Q: What do I need to buy to make a necklace with Feather Pendant?
A: If you looking to start with Chains, Eagle Hook or OLD Hook are necessary. Optionally, the addition of the K18 Silver Wheel to Eagle Hook with Chain provides higher stability and comfortability. By starting with Leather Cords, at least one piece of Plastic Bead is necessary to make the endpoint on the Cord to adjust the necklace's length.
Q: Plastic Beads and Leather Cord are free of charge?
A: We provide seven pieces of plastic beads and one leather cord for free to anyone who purchases any pendant top regardless of type.
