Zealandia Carved Ivory Jewelry - Fossilized Walrus Sea Turtle Pin

Our beloved sea turtle is swimming solo in this classic from the Zealandia carved ivory jewelry collection. Sea turtles are solitary creatures by nature and are rarely glimpsed in pairs or groups in the wild. The wise sea turtle seems content with the vast ocean for company in a life lived between the air and the waves.

This sea turtle pin's shell is made from fossilized walrus ivory and is hand carved with emblematic spiral and stipple patterns. The walrus ivory is some 500-3,000 years old, and it has lain in the earth for much of its long life. Minerals give the ivory its rich caramel to cocoa hue, and native peoples still gather it today as they have for centuries. It is used the world over as a prized decorative addition to fine jewelry and artisanal works.

This carved ivory pin also features a pendant back. You can wear it as a pin or as a walrus ivory pendant - a truly versatile piece!
