Our baby sea turtle necklace in silver and mammoth ivory is a petite treasure with its ancient materials and hand carved designs that make this pendant the perfect keepsake.
Sea turtle young hatch after spending some 45-70 days in the egg. They dig their way out of their shells and up to the sand's surface. Then begins the mad scramble for the sea and deep waters where they can begin life in comparative safety. These young must be strong, tenacious, and determined to make it from egg to ocean, and this baby sea turtle necklace celebrates their journey.
Fossilized mammoth ivory was selected for the baby turtle's carved shell. This prized material is over 15,000 years old, and, like the sea turtle, it has spent part of its life buried underground. The earth colors the mammoth tusk, which is valued the world over for the unique contribution it makes to carved ivory pendants or other artisanal works.
The Baby Turtle Necklace features hand carved spiral designs and an intricate bail - a lovely turtle solitaire necklace for anyone who loves these precious creatures as much as we do.
This pendant comes on an 18" sterling silver 1.1mm box with with a secure sterling silver lobster clasp.
Width 3/4" x Height 1 1/4" (approx)
