This fossilized ivory flower and amber triangle necklace is a graceful piece from our fossilized ivory jewelry collection with its hinge detail and hand crafted artisan quality.
Zealandia jewelry is always designed with creativity and natural expression in mind, and this fossilized ivory flower necklace is no exception. It is constructed with a moveable hinge detail between the oval amber top and the triangular lower portion, giving it an added touch of swing and sass.
The oval amber top stands out from the lower triangular shape thanks to this material's fiery, incandescent quality. Amber is said to have protective and cleansing properties with the power to clear emotional baggage and to clear the mind. It is even said to offer the power of transmutation, turning negative energy into positive energy.
The triangle is itself a powerful symbol, taking on many meanings from the Trinity to the chalice, a symbol of water, or the divine feminine. Triangles are associated with the number three, which is the triad and believed to be a complete number with a beginning middle and end. Our outer triangle borders a frame of 14k gold fill and sterling silver flowers plus an inner triangle of rich fossilized ivory.
The inner triangle is made from fossilized walrus ivory, which is between 500 and 3,000 years old. Fossilized walrus ivory has lain in the earth for centuries, accreting a variety of hues from cream to honey gold and deep cocoa. Native peoples gather it for carving, sale, and trade as they have for many years ' it is an important part of their culture and indigenous economy. Fossilized walrus ivory makes a beautiful center for this carved ivory pendant.
