This starfish pendant in silver and ancient ivory is a perfect memory of the sea shore and its wondrous creatures. Wear it with our Sea Garden earrings for a complete set!
The starfish - or sea star - is a highly sensitive and uniquely sensory creature. Delicate nerves run through is center and spider out to the tip of each arm, and certain species can even regenerate these limbs if lost. They harness the sea currents in lieu of blood to pump nutrients through their body and appear as almost 2,000 different species the world over.
The regenerative and sensitive qualities inherent to the starfish make it a tender symbol of the sea. Our starfish pendant in silver and green peridot is carved from ancient mammoth ivory tusk, a prized material that is over 15,000 years old and that has lain in the earth for many centuries accreting its cream to soft caramel hue. Fossilized mammoth ivory is collected and carved the world over into pieces of Zealandia starfish jewelry and other fine works of art.
This starfish necklace in silver and ancient ivory is as beguiling as the ocean itself with a sparkling faceted peridot accent. Peridot, the stone of stress relief, harmony, and compassion, is reminiscent of the ocean's calming powers, and it is especially lovely when paired with the ancient carved ivory.
