Silver Fish Jewelry—Fossilized Walrus Ivory Silver Fish Earrings
This powerful design from Zealandia's silver fish jewelry collection depicts fish nosing up to faceted blue topaz stones, an image that evokes the water magic that natives have long associated with fish. Fish are more than valuable food sources in various cultures—they are seen as medicine and as a representation of the unconscious in their deep, watery habitat.
These silver fish earrings features fossilized walrus ivory that is some 500 to 3,000 years old. This walrus ivory has spent most of its long life buried underground where the earth colored it the rich honey to caramel brown hues we see today. After erosion and the tides unearth it, Native peoples gather the walrus ivory for sale or trade. It is prized the world over for the touch of history it lends to fine carvings and to jewelry pieces such as these walrus ivory earrings.
Our blue topaz jeweled fish earrings make a special gift for anyone who feels a particular connection to the water, fishing, or as a keepsake for Pisces astrological signs.
