"Amphora" Ancient Fossilized Walrus Tusk Ivory and Peridot Silver Earrings

SFP822

Size Guide

These silver and green earrings are an elegant and contemporary depiction of a traditional Greco-Roman amphora used over the centuries'a chic pair featuring ancient fossilized ivory.

The amphora - a term coined in the Greek and Roman ages to describe this graceful vessel - has long been used to store wine, oils, and other valuable substances. The amphora was more than just a utilitarian vessel, however. It was extensively shaped, decorated, and inlaid, producing gorgeous works of art now housed in museums across the world.

These green and silver earrings' evocative silhouettes balance their two accents beautifully - an earthy, dense ancient ivory base and a faceted peridot accent that seems to burst from the amphora's rim. The shape is both representational and symbolic. These carved ivory earrings can be seen as their vessel namesake or as two arms offering the green peridot to the heavens.

Peridot is a semi-precious stone associated with emotional protection and spiritual harmony. Its sparkling facets are a desirable contrast to the fossilized walrus ivory's creamy sheen.

These walrus ivory earrings are made from fossilized walrus tusk, an ancient material. Fossilized walrus ivory spends many centuries in the earth where it is colored to its caramel hue. As no two fossilizing sites are the same, no two pieces of fossilized walrus ivory are identical. Its unique coloring and relative scarcity make this material a sought after treasure for the artists who work with it.

Wear these peridot drop earrings alone or match them to our Amphora necklace for a complete set!
