This sweet carved ivory bracelet highlights a garnet and silver bee charm in fossilized walrus ivory that is between 500 and 3,000 years old.
Bee lovers everywhere will adore our whimsical silver bee charm bracelet that takes the intrepid bee as its focal point in this handmade piece. Ancient Egyptians saw the bee as a symbol of the soul. The honeybee has also come to signify community, diligence, and fertility. No creature works harder to support the well being of our planet with his important pollination role. The honeybee directly supports the variety and continued survival of so many plants, so supporting the entire food chain.
The silver bee charm on this bracelet is made from fossilized walrus tusk, a prized natural material that is 500 to 3,000 years old. The walrus tusk lies in the earth for centuries where it is colored natural caramel to deep cocoa hues on its way to becoming fossilized. Fossilized walrus ivory is an important resource of Native peoples who gather it for carving, sale, or trade as they have for many years. It is valued the world over for the history and unique coloring it lends to fine jewelry such as this carved ivory bracelet.
The bracelet’s links are also set with carved fossilized walrus tusk in variegated colors. The silver bee charm features a sparkling deep red garnet accent where the charm meets the bracelet and honey colored 14k gold fill accents. Our bee charm bracelet is adjustable to fit most adult wrist sizes between 6 ¼ and 7 ½ inches.
We hope that our bee bracelet brings its owner many years of beauty as well as inspires an awareness of the honeybee’s current plight. We now know that honeybee levels are declining drastically worldwide, and there is much we can do to get involved and help.
