Our Legends carved ivory bracelet tells a unique story with every link set in patterned sterling silver and varied earthen shades of fossilized walrus ivory.
We love our jewelry to tell stories here at Zealandia. From the motifs, scenes, and legends that inspire our work right down the hand selected materials that make each piece of jewelry a stand out, we are story tellers first and foremost. At times these stories are clear and at other times we leave the tale up to the wearer for interpretation—a myth all their own for the creating.
Our Legends carved ivory bracelet was designed to inspire a sense of personal story for its owner. Each link is uniquely patterned or shaped—much like the fabric of our lives. Our designers worked to create a piece that wears like an individual history that is all yours for the writing. Sterling silver links patterned in spirals, hatched symbols, and even fish scales alternate with the earthen fossilized walrus ivory links on their journey around the wrist. This bracelet is a statement piece that works effortlessly with almost any look.
Our fossilized walrus ivory is between 500 and 3,000 years old, a prized material with its own age-old story to tell. This fossilized ivory has lain in the earth for most of its life where minerals color it the range of warm cream to deep cocoa hues we see today. Erosion and the tides bring the buried ivory back to the light, and for centuries Native peoples have gathered it as an important cultural and indigenous economic resource.
This walrus ivory bracelet is handmade to the finest quality standards, featuring a durable hook clasp and safety chain.
