Zealandia Carved Ivory Jewelry - Silver Sea Turtle Pin or Pendant

This radiant sea turtle pin finds our turtle in his last moments on the beach before diving into the surf and his second life between the waves. Turtles are unique in that they are not firmly in their marine habitat or their land habitat. They breathe air and lay their eggs on land, and yet their flippers make them poorly suited for graceful movement outside of their watery element.

This sea turtle's shell is carved from fossilized walrus ivory, an ancient material some 500-3,000 years old that has lain in the earth for much of its life. There, minerals color the walrus ivory the caramel to deep cocoa hues that have come to signify this fossilized ivory. Native peoples have a long tradition of gathering this prized material, and it is worked the world over into carved ivory jewelry pieces such as this sea turtle pin/pendant or other art works.

This fossilized ivory turtle pin also features a pendant back, enabling you to wear it both as a pin and a necklace. Sparkling blue topaz and green peridot suggest the sea and finish this piece from our popular sea turtle jewelry collection.
