Silver Mermaid Jewelry – Mammoth Ivory Mermaid NecklaceThe mermaid is an enigma—an elusive, brilliant flash among the waves. Look for her and she is gone. Call for her and she may approach. The latest in our mermaid jewelry collection showcases this siren of the sea in a rare moment of rest. In this mermaid pendant she e is pictured plucking a conch shell from sands, subtly surprised as we catch her in this private act.
The conch shell has enjoyed a rich and storied symbolism throughout time. It has come to be imbued with metaphysical properties, and has been used in ceremonies and in ritual across the centuries. The conch is tactile with its unique shape, auditory with the sound it makes when blown in and listened to, and also functional as a receptacle. It is a gift from the ocean, and our mermaid necklace highlights its significance.
Our artistans have carved the mermaid’s body and the conch shell from ancient mammoth ivory, which has lain in the earth or permafrost for over 15,000 years. Mammoth ivory takes us back to an almost forgotten time when these gorgeous animals still roamed the earth. This ancient ivory’s creamy color and age-old story give it a special place in the hearts of the artists and craftspeople who use it in their designs.
