This acorn necklace in silver and ancient ivory lend a whimsical touch of the natural world to your look with its artisan quality detailing.
The acorn has enjoyed a long and storied history that makes this fruit one of the most interesting and ubiquitous on earth. Various traditions see the acorn as a symbol of good luck and abundance. Its parent oak tree is held as sacred for its life giving properties and majesty. The acorn is even said to promote longevity and fertility. Today, acorns are still carried as healing talismans.
The acorn's shape, and particularly its cup, brings on visions of fairies sipping dew in the woods. The acorn is inextricably associated with wooded places, and it is an important food source for many animals from squirrels to deer, chipmunks, rabbits, wild turkeys, and more. The acorn is also deeply symbolic of the potential in all things. From the modest acorn the might oak does grow!
Our acorn necklace captures this lovely fruit in all its simplicity and perfection of line. The scaly cupule is made from patterned sterling silver and the nut itself from fossilized mammoth ivory. Our mammoth ivory is over 15,000 years old. It has lain buried in permafrost or the earth for centuries, accreting a range of warm cream to caramel hues that makes it ideal for representing the acorn nut.
