Do you love a Commie? A Commerson’s Dolphin, that is! This is our representation of a generic Commerson’s Dolphin Tail (fluke). The unique fluke pendant comes in one size and is available in silver, 14K in gold or white. This pendant reaches about the same width as our Bottlenose tail but is shaped quite differently. All pendants are handmade by the lost wax method of casting. The picture shown is our generic version. If you’d like it customized to a photo, please email the image to email@example.com. For more information on customized tail pendants click here.
The species, because of it’s black and white patterns, also has the names skunk dolphin, piebald dolphin and panda dolphin. Commerson’s Dolphins can be found in shallow waters along the southernmost tip of South America and around the Kerguelen Islands in the Indian Ocean. Or, you may have seen them at Aquatica Sea World. They’re very quick and energetic. If you have a photo of your favorite, we can customize it with all the nicks and notches.
Size is about 1″ or 25mm across from tip to tip for Commersons’ tail pendant. All handmade items will vary slightly in size and shape.
Note: All pendants are handmade by the lost wax method of casting, then polished to a high shine. Since they’re handmade, they could vary slightly in size. Silver tails without engraving will ship within 24 hours. Special engraving, diamonds and gold will ship within 3-4 weeks. If you want a different stone besides diamond, contact us.
Information about photos: We need a clear straight on shot of the flukes. If you don’t have a good picture, Terri can usually work with it BUT, remember, the better the photo, the better the detail you’ll get in your pendant. Include the information listed.
-Send image to firstname.lastname@example.org
-Animal’s name. Sometimes we can’t put the name, but we can engrave a date or word (see note below)
-Animal’s species. Is it a bottlenose, an orca, a commerson’s, rough toothed, etc
-Facility where you work or where the animal lives
-Do you prefer the dorsal side. If yes, the picture needs to be of the dorsal side. Whatever side of flukes the picture is taken, that will be the front of pendant. The engraving is on the back side. If it makes a difference to you, please let Terri know.

Important Note: We don’t make or sell custom tail pendants to individuals that are already sold in stores. If you want a custom tail of a favorite animal that we already make and sell to specific gift shops, we advise you to contact the store directly to make your purchase. Most stores will ship them to you. Exceptions to the rule are non-profit organizations that we help out by selling products on this website and give them a portion of proceeds. List of stores that sell our custom tail pendants &/or sea lion flippers: Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Coral World, Dolphin Connection, Dolphins Plus, Marine Mammal Responder, Dolphin Marine Magic, Discovery Cove, Discovery Point, Dolphin Quest (all 3), Dolphin Research Center, Gulfarium, Gulf World, Indy Zoo, Island Dolphin Care, Marineland, National Aquarium, Six Flags in CA, Theater of the Sea, Turtle Hospital.
There are certain corporations that have proprietary laws so therefore we won’t be able to recreate those tails into pendants. If you prefer to have a date or place instead of the animals name, we can do that.
