Our moon mermaid necklace in silver, mother of pearl, and ancient ivory whispers a siren song with her graceful silhouette and gorgeous mixed metal detailing.
Mermaids have a special relationship with the moon. Both are symbols of femininity, and both are uniquely connected to the ocean. The mermaid lives her life beneath the waves, an elusive and mythical creature. The moon draws on the tides, maintaining the earth's sensual rhythm. Together, these two come together in a lovely take on the traditional silver mermaid necklace.
Our designers set a mother of pearl moon behind the mermaid for its luminous quality and for the way the pearl's shimmer plays off the ancient ivory's smooth luster. Our ancient mammoth ivory has been buried in the earth for thousands of years where it accretes its creamy tone from minerals in the soil. This prized material is used the world over in fine pieces such as our mermaid necklaces and throughout Zealandia's award winning designs.
The mixture of rich 14k gold fill and sterling silver in the design give this carved ivory pendant an art deco feel. Our mermaid seems to be crooning to us as she swings from the moon, and it's easy to see why sea lore depicts these sirens as the ultimate temptresses.
