Fossilized Walrus Ivory and Silver Wings Earrings
Our fossilized walrus ivory and sterling silver wings earrings evoke flight and freedom with their graceful lines and desert Southwest-inspired design details. They are the perfect pair of dangling feather detail earrings with an emphasis on Bohemian style. Our designers were influenced by Native American and eagle imagery when creating these carved ivory earrings. Sterling silver, which is often the preferred metal in Native American jewelry, works wonderfully here to evoke the fossilized ivory's desert-inspired tones. The effect is both luminous and earthy, a collision of the spiritual and profoundly grounded experiences.
The embellished centers are created from hand-carved fossilized walrus ivory, an ancient material some 500 to 3,000 years old. The walrus tusk has lain in the earth for centuries, gradually going from a pale white shade to a range of cream to caramel and cocoa hues. We do our best to strive for continuity between our jewelry photography and the handmade pieces we ship. However, the exact color of your fossilized ivory earrings may vary from what is pictured here.
