"Hummingbirds" Ancient Fossilized Walrus Tusk Ivory Silver Earrings

SF609

Size Guide

This delicate pair of walrus ivory earrings features one of our favorite creatures, the delightful hummingbird, in gleaming sterling silver and handcrafted 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 pair of fossilized walrus ivory earrings. Sterling silver's liquid gleam is an ideal choice to highlight the wings and complement the fossilized walrus ivory's earthy glow. Your pair of hummingbirds will dance in flight with any movement of your head, creating an eye catching effect.

Each hummingbird body is hand carved from fossilized walrus ivory, an increasingly rare material that is 500 to some 3,000 years old. This fossilized ivory lies underground for much of its life where minerals color it the rich earthen shades that are its signature. It is an important part of Native Alaskans' economy, and these indigenous peoples gather the fossilized ivory to be carved into art works or sold and traded.

Fossilized walrus ivory inspires so many of our jewelry designs because of its unique connection to history and to the earth.

Each earring measures approximately 1" wide x 1 1/8" tall. 

A matching pendant is also available. 

Please allow 2 weeks for delivery.
