"Tender" Fossilized Mammoth Tusk and Garnet Sterling Silver Pendant


$ 168.00

This pendant features a deep fiery red garnet, spiraling silver details and warm fossilized ivory for a heart pendant that truly sings!

The heart is perhaps the most globally recognized symbol we have today. Its symmetry and the instant loving connection we make between the heart and any depiction of it has the power to lift our spirits. Heart jewelry is the gift of lovers, families, and friends—a surefire way to say I love you in a piece that can be treasured for a lifetime.

This garnet and silver heart pendant celebrates the heart and also a secondary symbol that has been no less important to man over the millennia: the spiral. The spiral, which represents the cosmos, has left its mark on many ancient tusk jewelry pieces. Here it emerges in a conch-like curl around the central garnet accent, and also in the fern-inspired spiral at the base of the heart. Our designers selected deep red garnet for its properties of passion and vitality, which boost the heart’s energy.

The right side of this silver heart pendant is set with hand carved fossilized ivory. This ancient mammoth ivory is upwards of 15,000 years old. It has lain in the earth or permafrost for centuries, accentuating a range of warm earth tones from soft cream to caramel. Mammoth ivory takes us back to a time when these wondrous creatures still roamed the earth, and is valued for the touch of history it lends to fine jewelry and art works.

This pendant measures approximately 1 1/4" wide x  1 1/4" tall (approx)
