"Hummingbird" Ancient Fossilized Mammoth Ivory Tusk Silver Pendant


This hummingbird necklace in silver and ancient ivory features one of our favorite creatures, the delightful hummingbird, in a delicate handcrafted Zealandia design.

    Did you know that the hummingbird has evolved to be a true creature of the air? Unlike most other birds, it cannot hop or walk—its feet are only useful for helping it to perch. The hummingbird's real strength is in its wings and its body weight, which at mere fractions of an ounce is less than a nickel. These extraordinary birds can reach flight speeds upward of 50 miles an hour.

    The hummingbird's delicacy inspired this mammoth ivory necklace. Sterling silver's liquid gleam is an ideal choice to highlight the wings and complement the fossilized ivory's earthy glow. Your hummingbird solitaire is sure to turn heads every time you wear it!.

    The hummingbird's body is hand carved from fossilized mammoth ivory, an increasingly rare material that is over 15,000 years old. This ancient ivory lies in permafrost or underground for much of its life where minerals color it the rich earthen shades that are its signature. Its luminous quality make it perfect for setting into carved ivory jewelry pieces such as this hummingbird pendant.

    The pendant measures approximately 1" wide x 1 1/8" tall. 

    This pendant comes with an 18" sterling silver 1.1 mm box chain with lobster clasp. 

    Matching earrings are also available.
