This carved ivory pendant from our silver dragonfly jewelry collection offers an exceptional connection to the earth with its ancient fossilized ivory wings and organic mixed metal detailing.
The dragonfly is revered as a symbol of healing with its connection to both the water and to the air. He owes his name to the myth that he was once a dragon, and he is still a powerful creature indeed. This winged beauty represents a change in perspective and evolution through self realization. He is a potent symbol of personal transformation.
The pendant is a metal combination of gleaming sterling silver and warm 14k gold fill for the dragonfly's body—two fine metals that combine to form a richly subtle palette against the fossilized ivory's earthy tones. The wings in this dragonfly pendant are hand carved with delicate veining that accentuates the fossilized ivory's polished luster.
The dragonfly's wings are made from fossilized mammoth ivory, an ancient material over 15,000 years old that comes back to us from the earth. It is uncovered after burial and centuries in permafrost or underground where minerals color the mammoth ivory caramel to chestnut shades. This precious material is prized as an irreplaceable accent in carved ivory pendants such as this one, and it is a reminder of eras long past when the great mammoth once roamed the earth.
This pendant comes on an 18" sterling silver 1.1 mm box chain with a lobster clasp.
