Dorado/Mahi-Mahi Jumping Fish Pendant

Dorado/Mahi-Mahi Jumping Fish Pendant




This is the Sterling Silver Dorado/Mahi-Mahi Jumping Fish Pendant with a wire wrap bale.

This fish has three interchangeable names to it.  It’s often referred to as Dorado, or Mahi-Mahi or Dolphinfish.

The other option is the Highlighted version.  I use black enamel paint and go over the fins and tail to add contrast.  The photos of this are coming soon. In the meantime, I have the highlighted version of the concealed bale pendant to show the highlights.

Have you been fortunate to catch a Dorado? Have you caught one on a fly rod?

When the open shore calls but there is no vacation in sight, relive the beauty and peace through one of these gorgeously detailed creations. Tight Lines Saltwater Collection makes a perfect gift for any Saltwater fishing enthusiast.

Each piece of the Saltwater Collection commemorates that rare catch you had on a vacation you will always remember. The thrill of seeing a Dorado jumping out of the water will always bring you back to that special trip.

The bale is a wire wrap mimicking the fly line coming from its mouth and curling up and creating 3 coils to create the bale. Due to its size and weight it looks best on a 3mm plain or braided black leather cord or a 2.5mm Sterling Snake chain.   I also offer it without a cord or chain if you have one you care to use.


This Dorado would look awesome in real life colors! The beauty of a Dorado with the light blues, greens and yellows is mesmerizing as most Saltwater species are. The enamel painted version would add $75 and make a unique piece of jewelry for men and women who love this species.

Do you have a photo of that special catch? I can mimic the coloration and markings to commemorate that special catch.

Due to the fluctuations of the Gold market, I am not listing the Gold options at this time.  You can contact me for a current market price if interested.  All of the gold jewelry is made to order and needs a minimum of 2 weeks to make. I can also order in 14K chains. Just email me at [email protected] or call me at 419-535-8888 to discuss options and prices.
