Baby Turtle Earrings in Fossilized Walrus Ivory
These sweet silver sea turtle earrings are among our smallest and most intricate designs. Sea turtle young hatch after spending some 45-70 days in the egg. They dig their way out of their shells and up to the sand's surface. Then begins their mad scramble for the sea and deep waters where they can begin life in comparative safety. These young must be strong, tenacious, and determined to make it from egg to ocean, and these baby turtle earrings celebrate their journey.
Our jewelry designers selected fossilized walrus ivory for the turtles' carved shell. This prized material is some 500 to 3,000 years old, and, like the sea turtle, it has spent part of its life buried underground. The earth colors the walrus tusk, which is valued the world over for the unique contribution it makes to carved ivory earrings or other artisanal works.
These baby turtle earrings feature hand carved spiral designs and intricate sterling silver details - a lovely pair of fossilized walrus ivory earrings for anyone who loves these precious creatures as much as we do.
