This delightful silver hummingbird necklace from Zealandia's silver hummingbird jewelry collection features fossilized walrus tusk ivory, faceted peridot, and earthy carnelian.
The hummingbird's flight offers hours of natural delight. How many of us have whiled away a summer afternoon watching the hummingbirds at play around their nectar flowers' The bird's delicacy and unforgettable energy are captured forever in this silver hummingbird necklace.
Zealandia designs are renowned for their combination of natural scenes and gorgeous natural materials. This piece of silver hummingbird jewelry is no exception, featuring ancient fossilized walrus tusk ivory that has been carved to represent the hummingbird's body. Our designers selected carnelian for the bird's nectar flower for its pop of deep, rich red that brings out the ancient walrus ivory's cocoa hues.
Ancient walrus tusk ivory spends centuries in the earth, accreting its cream to brown coloring. Natural forces such as erosion and the tides expose this fossilized material, and indigenous peoples gather it so that it can be crafted into jewelry or fine artisanal works. Each piece of fossilized walrus tusk ivory is as unique as each Zealandia design - a match made in heaven!
