ETHICAL IVORIES Fossilized walrus ivory and mammoth tusk is legal to own and is not obtained from living animals. Woolly mammoth tusk is anywhere from 10,000 to one million years old. Fossilized walrus ivory is ancient from 300 to 5,000 years old. The supply of fossilized mammoth tusk and walrus ivory is finite. The distinctive character and rarity of fossilized ivory makes each piece a truly lasting, one of a kind, piece of art.
IVORY CARE Clean only with a clean soft cloth taking care not to transfer black from the silver on the cloth to the ivory. Do not use jewelry cleaners, chemicals, soaps, or detergents. You may clean the ivory using a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol to gently wipe the ivory. As ivory is a porous, organic material, you may want to lightly treat it with a light coating of olive occasionally. Store your ivory out of direct sunlight, and avoid extreme heat, moisture and soaking.
