Our delightful sea turtle necklace in silver and fossilized ivory incorporates hand carved designs on his earth-toned shell and a streamlined silhouette - the perfect piece for any turtle lover!
We have long been enchanted with the sea turtle's ancient wisdom and gracious, gentle soul. He is a true minister of the waves, and he can adapt to an ever changing environment. This does not make our beloved turtle a chameleon, however. Quite the contrary: the sea turtle is ever himself - constant, autonomous, and seemingly benevolent through it all.
We adore sea turtles here at Zealandia Designs, and this silver sea turtle necklace reflects our love of this wondrous animal. Our designers selected fossilized walrus ivory for his carved shell, lending this carved ivory pendant an extra touch of earthy elegance. Fossilized walrus ivory has lain in the earth for many centuries accreting its soft cocoa hue. Erosion and tides expose it once again, and native peoples collect it for sale or trade. It is prized the world over by jewelry carvers and designers for its singular quality and age-old history.
This sea turtle necklace in silver and fossilized ivory incorporates spiral and stipple designs on his shell, reminiscent of ancient petro glyphs. The designs are inked to lend them contrast to the walrus ivory's earthen tones and to the silver's cool gleam - a favorite from our fossilized ivory jewelry collection!
