    Zealandia Silver Bee Jewelry—Fossilized Ivory Bee Earrings

    Our Blue Bee earrings juxtapose warm toned bees with brilliant aqua blue topaz accents that give this style a pop of delightful color. The bee is as much a creature of the air as the hive, and these silver bee earrings highlight the bees' journeys in flight.

    Blue topaz is considered a stone of protection against negativity, chaos, and disquiet. It is a calming stone that also plumbs the deep wells of creative inspiration and communication. Our vibrant blue topaz is especially lovely when paired with sterling silver and 14kt gold fill for a mixed metal effect.

    The bees' bodies are handcrafted from fossilized walrus ivory, which has lain in the earth for some 500 to 3,000 years. This ivory is a prized cultural and economic resource for the Native Alaskan people who gather it for carving, sale, and trade. It makes a particularly earthy addition to our jeweled pendants, adding a touch of antiquity to your favorite piece of Zealandia jewelry.
