Elegant design, gorgeous sparkling rainbow moonstone, and the rich earthy tones of fossilized mammoth ivory make these earrings a timeless classic.
This design finds its roots in the early years of Zealandia Designs. The spiral design in the sterling silver setting is a classic design element you'll see in nearly every Zealandia piece. The spiral represents the path we came from, the path we're on and the path on which we're moving forward; it's a symbol of inner reflection and exploration. Spirals are found in so many places in the natural world, from the curl of a fern frond to the curve of seashells.
The sparkling moonstone accents the creamy coloring of the fossilized walrus ivory inlay. The fossilized ivory used for these earrings is fossilized mammoth ivory that is tens of thousands of years old. It lay buried in the permafrost until it became exposed from erosion. Since mammoths went extinct thousands of years ago, fossilized mammoth ivory is a finite material and prized for its soft cream color that makes it ideal for fine jewelry.
