Fossilized Walrus Tusk Hinge Earrings

Zealandia designs are imagined with a unique eye for natural materials and innovative design, creating a look and feel that is anything but ordinary. Our commitment to a range of naturally beautiful materials that tell an age-old story helps make our fossilized ivory jewelry sought after worldwide. We are continually inspired by nature and nature's materials; our New Dawn hinge earrings are a perfect example of this inspiration.

Our designers selected two shades of variegated fossilized walrus tusk for this pair, setting the fossilized ivory in a sterling silver hinge design. The fossilized walrus tusk is between 500 and 3,000 years old. It accretes its earthen hues from minerals in the earth where it has lain buried for centuries. This prized material is an important cultural and economic resource for the Native peoples who gather it.

The natural color variation found in fossilized walrus tusk is part of what makes this material so special. Our artisans hand select each piece of fossilized tusk, ensuring the utmost quality and care goes into our jewelry. Gradations in color mean that the specific fossilized ivory shades in your pair of earrings may vary from the colors pictured here.
