Artisan Carved Mammoth Ivory Earrings
This lovely pair of hand-carved mammoth ivory earrings takes its design inspiration from the arctic sun, which offers gorgeous golden light for months on end during the summer. Home to the 'Midnight Sun,' the arctic circle sees a spectacular amount of light during the warm season that illuminates the area's pristine silvered waters and icebergs.
These carved ivory earrings' sun accents are made from fossilized mammoth ivory tusk, a naturally colored material that gains its cream to caramel hue after centuries spent buried in permafrost or the earth. Mammoth ivory tusk is over 15,000 years old, dating back to when the last of the great mammoths roamed the earth. It is prized the world over as a fine addition to artisan crafts and jewelry, carrying with it that touch of ancient times.
The earrings are finished with an intricately decorated sterling silver treatment that highlights our signature spiraling wave motif. Like each piece of Zealandia jewelry, no detail is left incomplete, and the result is a classic pair of fossilized mammoth ivory earrings that will last a lifetime."
