The starfish - or sea star - is a highly sensitive and uniquely sensory creature. Delicate nerves run through is center and spider out to the tip of each arm, and certain species can even regenerate these limbs if lost. They harness the sea currents in lieu of blood to pump nutrients through their body and appear as almost 2,000 different species the world over.
The regenerative and sensitive qualities inherent to the starfish make it a tender symbol of the sea. Our starfish pendant in silver and blue topaz is carved from ancient mammoth ivory tusk, and it is over 15,000 years old. This mammoth ivory tusk has lain in the earth for many centuries, accreting its soft cream to caramel hue and distinctive luminosity. It is prized the world over and carved into pieces of Zealandia starfish jewelry or other fine works of art.
This starfish necklace in silver and ancient ivory is as beguiling as the ocean itself with a sparkling faceted blue topaz accent. This aqua stone is knowns as the stone of clarity and concentration, and it is reminiscent of the ocean's rejuvenating powers. Blue topaz is especially lovely when paired with the carved mammoth ivory featured in this pendant.
