TAO Necklace AURA

Applies a 55mT magnetic field spaced 10mm apart throughout the neck loop in Colantotte’s unique Alternating North-South Polarity Orientation (ANSPO™). The magnetic force affects a large area and improves blood circulation in the neck and shoulders, allowing this magnetic necklace to alleviate neck and shoulder stiffness. The impressive design of the pendant with its “CO” brand mark utilizes “mirrored finish” and “polished cloisonne” technology. The whole product is painstakingly crafted by hand, creating a gorgeous contrast between the platinum-like sheen and the deep obsidian-like color.

TAO Necklace RAFFI

Applies a 55mT magnetic field spaced 10mm apart throughout the neck loop in Colantotte’s unique Alternating North-South Polarity Orientation (ANSPO™). The magnetic force affects a large area and improves blood circulation in the neck and shoulders, allowing this magnetic necklace to alleviate neck and shoulder stiffness.

The area where the joint and pendant overlap can be unfastened from either the left or the right. The loop and pendant are independent of one another, giving the necklace the flexibility needed to fit snugly around your neck and feel gentle against your skin. The slim, 4mm-diameter loop is recommended for women as well. The high-quality stainless-steel pendant undergoes a painstaking mirror-finishing process, making it shine like platinum. The name “ColanTotte TAO Necklace RAFFI” was inspired by the Italian word “Raffinato,” which means “cool.” Its stylish appeal makes it appropriate for a number of different situations.
