Our angel fish necklace pendant or carved ivory pin features two fish swimming side by side in unison, their sterling silver fins flowing in the current.
The angel fish boasts one of the most graceful and recognizable silhouettes among the whole fish family. Its prominent dorsal fin and long trailing ventral fins give the impression that this swimmer is meant for the stage, adorned in its showy finery. Our angel fish are modeled after the fresh water variety, which show a more vertical fin orientation.
Angel fish do enjoy to pair up, and this is why we've captured two of them in our angelfish necklace pendant/pin. Our designers set one fish slightly behind the other, giving this piece depth and dimension. They symbolize unity and harmony in their tandem swim.
The angel fish's bodies are carved from fossilized walrus tusk, a prized natural material some 500 to 3,000 years old. Fossilized walrus tusk lies in the earth for centuries accreting the varied caramel to deep cocoa hues pictured here. We strive for a variation in tone with this angel fish necklace, though the particular colors of your fossilized ivory selection may vary from what is shown.
Our pendant also has a pin back so that it can be worn as a necklace or as a fossilized ivory pin. This versatile piece makes a wonderful addition to any jewelry collection.
