Mammoth Tusk and Silver Fern Pendant

This ornate, yet classic, fossilized ivory and fern pendant takes its inspiration from the New Zealand Maori Koru design. The koru represents the new growth of the silver fern as it unfolds, symbolizing creation. The unfolding fern invokes a feeling of both perpetual motion and a return to the point of origin, suggesting new life, growth and strength. The koru's graceful outline and almost whimsical mood makes it ideal for design work and as a jewelry accent.

This pendant from our koru jewelry collection is light as a feather. It is made from very light fossilized ivory and finely worked sterling silver, which brings out the ancient ivory’s warm tones. Pair this fern pendant with our mammoth ivory fern earrings for a matching set!

The top accent in this carved ivory pendant is made from fossilized mammoth ivory, an ancient material that brings us back many millennia to when the great mammoths still roamed the earth. At some 10,000 to over 15,000 years old, our mammoth ivory has rested in permafrost or the earth for thousands of years where it acquires a range of butter to cocoa hues. The natural luminous nature of our mammoth ivory makes it a wonderful addition to our heirloom jewelry pieces that are treasured across the world.
