This graceful carved ivory pendant features fossilized ivory that is some 500 to 3,000 years old set into a surf inspired design - the perfect pendant necklace for ocean lovers everywhere!
Our carved ivory ocean pendant features signature Zealandia design and function married with our favorite fossilized walrus tusk ivory for a classic piece you'll wear again and again. The hinge design in this piece makes it a tactile, moveable pendant that lies naturally on the neck or chest, depending on your chain length.
Our fossilized walrus ivory is some 500 to 3,000 years old, and it has spent much of its life underground where the earth colors it the rich and variegated creamy browns that signify this wonderful material. After erosion and the tides unearth the fossilized ivory, Native peoples gather it for sale or trade. It is prized the world over for its rarity and premium quality, and for the unique addition it makes to artisanal art works and crafts.
Inspired by the ocean's mesmerizing patterns, this hand worked sterling silver setting is a captivating complement to the walrus ivory's earthy quality. Zealandia jewelry is often inspired by the sea and its many moods.
