This silver bee necklace depicts the intrepid bee buzzing along through its natural habitat, created in intricate sterling silver and fresh green peridot semi-precious stones .
Bees are among the most beautiful and essential members of our creature companions. The Egyptians saw them as symbols of the soul, and they are also associated with community, dedication, and diligence. The bee in nature is a familiar and precious sight, one that Zealandia designers have captured here in this silver bee necklace featuring fresh green peridot.
Peridot is a semi-precious stone that is used for its verdant color and close association with nature. The carved ivory bee buzzes between peridot accents as it does in its environment, playing a vital role in pollination, which in turn sustains all of us along the food chain. We would not be where we are today if not for the humble bee, framed here in sterling silver in our fossilized walrus ivory necklace.
The fossilized walrus ivory carved into the bees body has spent most of its life - many, many centuries - buried in the earth where it gathered a soft cocoa coloring. Our fossilized walrus ivory infuses this silver bee necklace with an age-old history, a touch of ancient times. This ancient ivory is prized and carved the world over for inclusion in fine jewelry and art pieces.
