"Turtle Spiral" Ancient Fossilized Walrus Ivory Tusk and Sterling Silver Pin or Pendant


Size Guide

This striking fossilized ivory pin features an emblematic spiral design and our beloved sea turtles rendered in stunning hand carved detail and contemporary design.

This carved ivory pin offers a unique turtle spiral design. The spiral is an age-old symbol found throughout nature that man began imitating almost as soon as he could draw. Its enigmatic shape is said to represent the journey from the outer world to the inner or the cycle of rebirth and growth.

Whatever its formal meaning, the spiral is the type of shape that pulls you in and beckons you to dream. Spirals are featured throughout Ancient Ivory jewelry designs, and the spiral is featured prominently in this sea turtle pin.

These wise sea turtles are hand carved from fossilized walrus tusk ivory, a prized natural material some 500-3,000 years old. The walrus tusk has lain in the earth for most of its life, accreting a rich caramel to cocoa hue. Native peoples have long gathered this fossilized ivory for sale or trade, and it is used the world over for the fine decorative addition it makes to jewelry and other art works.

This spiral turtle pin is made with both a pin and a pendant back, enabling you to also wear it as a necklace!

    This pin/pendant measures 1 1/2" wide x 1 5/8" tall (approx)

    This pendant comes on an 18" sterling silver 1.1mm box with with a secure sterling silver lobster clasp.
