Silver Hummingbird Jewelry—Fossilized Ivory Silver Hummingbird Necklace

The hummingbird represents delight in life, lightness, energy, and quick, precise action. They are fascinating creatures to watch with their lightning fast wing beats, rapid movement, and the sweet way they sip nectar from a flower or feeder. If you are lucky enough to spot a hover of these birds, you'll see that they form a moving mosaic of color and motion in the air, which is abuzz with the vibrations of their tiny wings. This bold, miniscule bird is unique to North and South American continents, and they inspired much wonder when Europeans first settled the Americas.

Hummingbird necklace in silver and fossilized walrus tusk is a poem of movement, natural materials, and inventive design. The hummingbird's bodies are carved from fossilized walrus tusk ivory, a material that is some 500 to 3,000 years old and highly prized for its natural quality and rarity.

Fossilized walrus ivory has lain in the earth for centuries where minerals stain it the soft honey to deep cocoa hues it is now known by. Native peoples gather this fossilized ivory for sale and trade as they have for many years, and it is a valuable addition to artisanal crafts and to jewelry pieces such as this walrus ivory pendant.

The hummingbirds' wings and eyes are made from sterling silver, which is a cool complement to the fossilized ivory's warm tones. A double hook chain finishes this silver hummingbird necklace and balances the pendant expertly between both hooks. You'll treasure this favorite from our silver hummingbird jewelry collection for a lifetime!
