Made from 925 sterling silver, this Chinese Zodiac Rat Charm from Soufeel embodies these qualities with meticulous attention to detail and its charming appearance. With its smiling little upturned face this little guy is sure to delight. Those born in the Year of the Rat should wear this charm with pride.
