Our sweet sea turtle earrings in silver and fossilized ivory incorporate hand carved designs on their earth-toned shells and streamlined silhouettes - the perfect pair for any turtle lover!
We have long been enchanted with the sea turtle's ancient wisdom and gracious, gentle soul. He is a true minister of the waves, and he can adapt to an ever changing environment. This does not make our beloved turtle a chameleon, however. Quite the contrary: the sea turtle is ever himself - constant, autonomous, and seemingly benevolent through it all.
We adore sea turtles here at Zealandia Designs, and these silver sea turtle earrings reflect our love of this wondrous animal. Our designers selected fossilized walrus ivory for the turtles' carved shells, lending these carved ivory earrings a touch of earthy elegance.
Fossilized walrus ivory has spent much of its 300 to 5,000 year life buried in the earth where it gathered its soft cocoa hue. Natives gather this precious material after erosion and the tides expose it to be sold or traded as part of their livelihood. Fossilized walrus ivory is prized the world over by jewelry carvers and designers for its singular quality and age-old history.
These sea turtle earrings in silver and fossilized ivory incorporates spiral and stipple designs, reminiscent of ancient petro glyphs. The designs are inked to lend them contrast to the walrus ivory's earthen tones and to the silver's cool gleam - a favorite pair from our fossilized ivory jewelry collection!
