Mammoth Ivory Tusk Ocean Earrings in Handmade Silver - Ocean Currents
What does the dolphin symbolize for you' For many of us it is harmony, playful joy, intelligence, sensitivity, and friendliness. How can we forget the first time we saw the dolphin's ever present smile or watched him leap in a smooth arc above the waves' The dolphin has the uncanny ability to reach right into our hearts and warm them with his boundless joy at being alive.
Our designers sought to capture the very spirit of this joyous creature by setting him in his element, the surf. Our hand worked sterling silver setting features textures and bubble accents that gleam in the light. Rainbow moonstone—a deeply spiritual semi-precious stone—complements the sterling silver beautifully in two round cut faceted accents and a drop shaped dangling accent that evokes the purity of the sea.
The dolphin himself is hand carved from fossilized mammoth ivory tusk, an ancient material that dates back over 15,000 years to when the last of the mammoths were alive. Fossilized mammoth ivory has lain in permafrost or the earth for many centuries, accreting its luminous cream to caramel or cocoa hues. To touch a piece of this ancient treasure is to step back into ancient times when these gorgeous animals roamed the earth.
Mammoth ivory is prized the world over for the ethereal contribution it makes to fine jewelry pieces such as our Sea Spirit silver dolphin pendant.
