The bee symbolized the soul to the ancient Egyptians, and has always been associated with fertility, diligence and community. This "bees buzzing" sterling silver necklace features several faceted garnets and bees each with a beautifully designed body of fossilized walrus tusk and wings of sterling silver accented with 14kt gold fill. The necklace measures approximately 2 1/2" tall and 1 5/8" wide.
Prehistoric fossilized walrus tusk is around 500 to 3,000 years old. It is excavated along the Bering sea coast of Alaska by Eskimo families. The unique colors of this ancient ivory are created by minerals from the soil. This material is legal to carve and own. Add a sterling silver snake chain to your pendant or contact us for other chain options. The chain is rhodium plated to retard tarnishing.
