Ancient Ivory Face Pendant
Who is this ivory woman carved from ancient fossilized mammoth tusk, and what secrets is she keeping beneath her far-seeing gaze? This carved ivory pendant is created in incredible detail from the 14kt gold fill and sterling silver tendrils framing her face to her fine, delicate features. She is ornamented as much as she is an ornament and a fine example of our renowned hand-carved mammoth tusk jewelry.
Fossilized mammoth tusk ivory is a unique and rare type of ancient ivory that has spent centuries buried in the earth where it accretes its creamy tone. This fossilized ivory is gathered and hand-carved, used as a prized material in fine jewelry and art pieces. Its consistent cream coloring makes this mammoth tusk ivory an ideal material for the ivory face carved here.
Our ornamented ivory woman wears a faceted garnet in her hair. Garnet is the stone of love, the heart, rejuvenation, and revitalized life. The 14kt gold fill encircling this garnet brings out its deep red tones to perfection. This carved ivory pendant is a one of a kind piece that is sure to attract attention every time you wear it.
