This unique toggle ancient mammoth ivory polar bear pendant necklace features artisan craftsmanship and a luxurious silver rope chain—a true art piece you'll find every excuse to wear!
The polar bear is traditionally beloved as a symbol of introspection and is believed to be an expert navigator of the watery dream world. His resourcefulness in the face of adverse living conditions has made the polar bear a survivor. Now, however, he is a threatened species in very real danger of extinction. Global warming means a vanishing ice cap, which is essential to the polar bear's hunting patterns.
Our polar bear mammoth ivory necklace highlights hand carved details and gorgeous natural materials, hand selected for representing the north's icy beauty. A mother of pearl ice cap and sterling silver mountain range form the backdrop for our dreaming bear who lolls against the sterling silver frame in this unique design. The polar bear pendant is connected to the rope chain by a silver fish toggle clasp.
Our fossilized mammoth ivory polar bear is made from mammoth tusk that is some 10,000 to over 15,000 years old. It has lain in permafrost or the earth for millennia, accreting a soft cream to warm caramel hue. Mammoth ivory is prized the world over for its fine quality and the touch of antiquity it brings to art jewelry pieces such as this necklace.
The use of fossilized mammoth ivory is also particularly poignant as it is sourced from an animal now extinct and used to carve the polar bear who faces a similar fate.
