This jeweled amethyst and garnet honeybee necklace is a colorful and decorative piece from our award winning silver bee jewelry collection—an heirloom pendant you'll cherish for a lifetime!
Honeybees share naturally. They share with one another in the hive and they share the pollen that sticks to their legs from plant to plant. It is this pollination skill that makes them such an indispensible part of our eco system and a beautiful example of Mother Nature's perfect grace. This honeybee necklace finds our intrepid bee buzzing between colorful blooms represented by amethyst and garnet semi-precious gemstones.
Jenny Byrne, Zealandia's lead designer, began her silver bee jewelry collection when we first heard reports that the honeybee populations were dying out. It is her hope that her bee jewelry pieces bring their owner years of beauty but that they also help raise awareness for this global problem. Her unique combination of sterling silver and 14k gold fill along with sparkling gemstones and ancient fossilized ivory make her bee pendants and earrings among those truly special pieces that are passed down through generations.
In addition to mixed metals and faceted semi-precious gemstones, this carved ivory pendant also features fossilized walrus tusk, which is between 500 and 3,000 years old. Our fossilized ivory has lain in the earth for centuries where minerals color it a wonderful variety of cream to deep cocoa shades. It is an important part of the Indigenous Alaskans' culture and economy where it is gathered, carved, sold, or traded.
Fossilized walrus tusk's distinctive earthy quality helps make this bee a real beauty!
