The traditional Japanese geisha has become a singularly feminine and enigmatic symbol. She is an entertainer - an artist in her own right - and like many entertainers she is elusive, though she may live a life in the public eye. She is beauty and grace personified, and yet this is simply the image she chooses to portray. Our carved mammoth ivory geisha wears a secretive expression as if she is enjoying a delightful thought all her own.

The fan was an important part of a geisha's life as it was an accessory to her dancing and charm. Our garnet, opal, and mother of pearl geisha pendant features the fan both as a frame and as a subtle protector for the woman within, revealing her and keeping her apart from the viewer. This is part of the paradox captured in our geisha jewelry - the seemingly unattainable woman in plain sight.

Our carved ivory geisha necklace is made from ancient mammoth ivory tusk, a material that has lain in the earth for centuries. There this ancient ivory accretes a creamy hue, and it is prized the world over for its quality and engaging history. It is a piece of antiquity you can hold in your hand - or in this case wear around your neck - and provides a wonderful flesh-like quality for our semi-precious stone and mother of pearl geisha pendant.
