Our silver seahorse earrings feature hand carved fossilized walrus tusk ivory accents along their backs. Fossilized walrus ivory is a unique and ancient material some 500 to 3,000 years old. Its rich caramel to cocoa coloring gathered from centuries spent buried in the earth makes it a wonderful contrast to the gleaming sterling silver in these carved ivory earrings. Native peoples gather our walrus ivory after erosion and the tides have unearthed it, and it is valued the world over as a natural jewelry and artisan craft material.
The seahorse's detailed bodies are worked in sterling silver with attention paid to the textured details that set this sea dweller apart. From coronet to tail tip, this set is a conversation piece and a fine addition to any ocean lover's jewelry collection.
