Fossilized Walrus Tusk Ivory Garnet Cross Necklace

This garnet cross necklace is a moving example of fine design and prized natural materials thanks to its fossilized ivory center and rich garnet accents. The ivory cross exemplifies Zealandia designers' attention to detail and material nuance. Each graceful silver curl and hand set stone is carefully considered, contributing to a uniquely universal and spiritual piece of jewelry.

Fossilized walrus tusk ivory is an ancient ivory that has lain in the earth for many centuries, gently accreting its cream to cocoa hue. The tides and natural erosion uncover this fossilized ivory, and it is gathered by indigenous peoples for use in fine jewelry and art pieces. The coloring in this walrus ivory pendant is totally natural, a result of the earth's years of loving attention.

Garnet is among the select stones chosen to complement our walrus ivory for its deep, blood-red color and revitalizing, regenerative properties. Garnet is the stone of love in all forms, lending this fossilized ivory cross necklace extra meaning.
