"Monsoon" Ancient Walrus Tusk Ivory and Peridot Silver Earrings


These fossilized ivory and peridot drop earrings are as fresh as the air after a seasonal monsoon and beautifully detailed sterling silver filigrees.

We are all treading the vanishing road of a song in the air, the vanishing road of the spring flowers and the winter snows, the vanishing roads of the winds and the streams-- R. La Gallienne

These fossilized ivory and peridot drop earrings are striking in their naturally inspired design and creative use of ancient materials. The fresh green peridot is complemented by a fossilized ivory top that brings out this semi-precious stone's faceted sparkle.

Fossilized walrus ivory is an ancient material that began its journey many centuries ago when it was buried in the earth. There, the earth colored the ivory to its current variagated hue. Native peoples gather this prized material for sale and trade. Today, it is used in exceptional jewelry and artisanal works.

The unique material in these carved ivory earrings lends this set a touch of antiquity.
