Hand Carved Whale Tail Earrings
These carved ivory earrings depict a whale tail in soft, creamy tones splashing out of an ocean of sterling silver waves, with a glistening blue topaz stone above. The whale tail is carved from fossilized mammoth ivory, which is an ancient material that has spent thousands of years in the earth. After it is uncovered and gathered, this prized ancient ivory is hand carved into one of a kind heirloom jewelry.
Fossilized mammoth ivory is especially beautiful when paired with gleaming sterling silver and semi-precious stones. The effect is both multi-dimensional and uniquely narrative - it tells a story about the natural world and evokes a mood. Zealandia designs are definitive in their connection to nature in her many expressions. Our jewelry is often collected by those who feel this same deep kinship with the natural world.
Pair these earrings with either the Whale Song pendant or Moonrise pendant for a beautiful set."
