The Anglerfish is a carnivore that fishes by luring its prey with a fleshy appendage called an "esca" that hangs temptingly just in front of its mouth. The esca is colonized with bioluminescent bacteria that attract smaller fish in the darkness of the deep ocean. Females also use the bioluminescent esca to attract mates. In addition to this specialized structure, anglerfish are characterized by a globose shape and ferociously sharp teeth that angle inward to prevent prey fish from escaping. This anglerfish design is inspired by the genus Himantolophus.

The Anglerfish pendant is 2 cm (0.8 inches) long below the loop.

The pendant is 3D printed in solid sterling silver, bronze or brass and finished with a sterling silver, gold-plated silver or rose gold-plated silver anchor chain to match.
