Silver Fish Jewelry—Fossilized Walrus Tusk Fishing Necklace
This powerful design from Zealandia's silver fish jewelry collection depicts a fish nosing up to a faceted blue topaz stone, an image that evokes the water magic that natives have long associated with fish. Fish are more than valuable food sources in various cultures—they are seen as medicine and as a representation of the unconscious in their deep, watery habitat.
This silver fish necklace features fossilized walrus tusk ivory, a material that tells a tale all its own thanks to centuries spent in the earth where it is gently colored. Our fossilized walrus ivory is some 500 to 3,000 years old. After erosion and the tides expose this fossilized material, Native peoples gather it for sale or trade, and it is carved into fine works of art or jewelry pieces such as this walrus ivory pendant.
Our jeweled fish necklace makes a wonderful gift for anyone who feels a particular connection to the water, fishing, or as a keepsake for Pisces astrological signs.
