Our delightful fossilized ivory and silver bunny earrings capture this gentle pair in a playful mood—a favorite set from our Secret Garden Collection!
These sweet carved ivory earrings find our rabbits assuming a playful, relaxed pose. The rabbit symbolizes various traits across different traditions. In Chinese astrology, those born in the year of the rabbit tend to be compassionate, calm, emotionally sensitive, and possessing of an artistic sense. Rabbits also symbolize spring, rebirth, fertility, and a jovial nature.
Rabbits are social and affectionate creatures. Their complex and inter-involved family dynamics as well as their prolific procreative abilities make them symbolic of ancestral lines. The soft toned rabbit in these fossilized ivory and silver bunny earrings radiate the modest and gentle nature that makes this furry friend so loveable.
Our bunnies are hand carved from fossilized mammoth ivory that has lain buried in permafrost for tens of thousands of years. While laying buried, minerals in the soil leech into the ivory causing coloration that can range from creamy white to beige to dark brown. Fossilized mammoth ivory is a finite material which makes it ideal for treasured heirloom jewelry that will be enjoyed for generations.
This pair is finished with a sterling silver wrap setting, which adds to the jewelry's totemic and organic feel. Wear these fossilized ivory and silver bunny earrings with our coordinating bunny necklace for a complete set!
