This turtle circle bracelet in sterling silver and fossilized walrus tusk ivory makes a sea-inspired statement with its earthy colors, contemporary design, and hand carved details.
These hand carved sea turtle links form a swimming turtle circle that is all whimsy and charm in this gorgeous piece from our walrus ivory bracelet collection.
The sea turtle is often seen as an old soul, a wise and adaptable creature who lives his life above and below the waves in a life tied inextricably to the sea. The sea and its wondrous creatures inspire many of Zealandia's beloved designs. This sea turtle bracelet is perfect for anyone who loves the aquatic life.
Each sea turtle is carved from fossilized walrus tusk ivory, a prized natural material that is some 500-3,000 years old. The walrus tusk has lain underground for most of its life where minerals give it its earthen hue. Native peoples gather this fossilized ivory after erosion and the tides unearth it, and it is used the world over in fine jewelry pieces such as this one and other handmade works.
The three sterling silver rings at the end of this bracelet make it adjustable from 7 to 8 1/4 inches, enabling most women to wear it at varied lengths.
