The Koi’s ancient symbolism is wonderfully complemented in fossilized walrus ivory that is hundreds of years old and a hand carved mother of pearl rose, creating a truly classic pendant.

The fossilized walrus ivory in this koi fish necklace may well date back to before Confucius’ time. It is between 500 and 3,000 years old, and it gathers its rich coloring from minerals lying near it in the earth. Native Alaskans collect this precious material for use in their art works or for sale/trade. It is an important asset to their cultural and economic heritage.
The rose below the fish is carved from gleaming mother of pearl, lending a soft luster to this piece that mimics the koi’s sheen.
