Ancient Ivory Silver Mermaid Pendant
The Mermaid Minx tells a story as old as the seas with coquettish pose and playfully seductive air. The mermaid has long been a symbol of seduction, but she also represents adaptability and transformation with her fishtail and woman's upper body.
This mermaid tail necklace in sterling silver and ancient ivory emphasizes the mermaid's tail, her particularly magical quality that lets her drift into the seas. She comes and goes as she pleases, ever-gorgeous, and elusive.
The Mermaid Minx is part of Zealandia's mammoth ivory jewelry collection that highlights this rare material's unique qualities. Ancient fossilized mammoth ivory has lain in the earth for centuries, gradually acquiring the soft, creamy tones that make it such a pleasure to work into signature designs.
This fossilized ancient ivory is gathered and then hand-carved or worked into a mammoth ivory necklace such as this one or into another artisanal art piece. Your piece of mammoth ivory jewelry is truly unique as no two selections of fossilized ancient ivory are identical.
