This happy sea turtle necklace in silver and ancient ivory finds our lovers at play in the surf, beautifully rendered in Zealandia's signature swirling wave details.
Sea turtles court in the water, sometimes travelling hundreds of miles to find just the right spot to mate. It seems that the male with the strongest neck often gets the girl, and in this silver sea turtle necklace we find our lovers contentedly matched, swimming as a pair. Our designers selected ancient mammoth tusk ivory in varied hues to represent the sea turtles, lending this carved ivory pendant added dimension and contrast.
Ancient mammoth ivory is over 15,000 years old and has spent much of its life in the ground. There, it is colored to its current varied cream colored hue. Artisans the world over prize this natural, ancient material for its quality and age-old history.
Pairing sterling silver with this mammoth ivory pendant is a Zealandia signature. Silver's brilliant gleam is a natural complement for ancient ivory's luminous, earthy tones. The wave details in this silver sea turtle necklace are created in our designers' hallmark swirling current patterns - this piece truly lives and breathes the sea!
