The tribal wings earrings from our beloved silver dragonfly jewelry collection combine our fine artisan craftsmanship with touches of ancient fossilized ivory for an earthy and ornate look.
The myth of the dragonfly tells us that this delicate insect is believed to have once been a dragon. Native American traditions associate speed, purity, and transformation with the dragonfly, as well as other attributes. The dragonfly's wings, which are wet and supple when they first emerge from the nymph stage, are truly miraculous. They enable the dragonfly to fly in all directions, hover, zip around at very high speeds, and even permit their owners to mate in mid air.
The wings are the dramatic and embellished focal point for these dragonfly earrings in silver and fossilized ivory. A living dragonfly's wings are intricately veined, and our designers sought to enhance this veining with a tribal inspired design. This tribal wings design is created in an oxidized silver relief layer below the top layer, giving the wings dimension and making them a beautifully wearable pair from the Zealandia silver dragonfly jewelry collection.
The earring tops are carved from fossilized walrus ivory, which is between 500 and 3,000 years old. This ancient ivory is a precious material due to its finite supply and for its artisan revered quality. Over the centuries, minerals in the earth have colored the walrus ivory in shades ranging from warm cream to the deepest chocolate. Native peoples gather it for their own art works or for sale/trade, and it is an important part of their indigenous economy.
The touch of ancient fossilized ivory gives this pair of dragonfly wing earrings an earthy and rich look. Pair them with our Tribal Dragonfly necklace for a complete set!
