This silver and ancient ivory geisha necklace or pin captures the demure geisha dancing with her fan, adorned in intricate dress and designed to be seen and admired.
The geisha is an enigma. On one hand, she is trained for performance and entertainment. On the other, she carries with her a decidedly private air as if she alone is privy to the secrets she might share. This ancient mammoth ivory geisha necklace can be worn as a pendant or pin, and it was created to capture the geisha in full dress, dancing with her fan.
Her carved ancient mammoth ivory face is inscrutable, eyes cast down as she concentrates. Ancient fossilized mammoth ivory is a centuries old material that has lain in the earth, accreting its creamy hue and resilient hardened state. This ancient material is prized the world over for its quality and luminescence. It is especially lovely in a face carving such as this geisha pin setting, giving this piece of Zealandia geisha jewelry an extra touch of eras gone by.
The Japanese fan dance is a performance dance that is all subtlety and grace. The primary goal of this dance - as with all geisha activities - is to express beauty. This geisha pin captures a moment in that quest for beauty as the dancer sweeps her fan up, every hair pin and fold of her robe in place. Our geisha necklaces and pins seek to capture these beautiful women in both traditional and unexpected moments, offering an unforgettable glimpse into their private world.
