"Vanishing Ice Cap" Ancient Mammoth Tusk and Mother of Pearl Silver Pin or Pendant


$ 368.00

This fossilized ivory polar bear pin/pendant pays tribute to the endangered polar bear with ancient mammoth ivory, a material that reminds us how the earth can lose an entire species forever.

This mammoth ivory necklace highlights the polar bear's natural beauty with a luminous mother of pearl ice cap and icy mountain habitat depicted in sterling silver. The polar bear himself is artisan carved from fossilized mammoth ivory, an ancient material that is uniquely connected to the subject. Much like the polar bear's current plight, the great mammoths were once endangered and are now extinct.

The mammoth ivory featured in this piece is over 15,000 years old. It has lain in permafrost or in the earth for many thousands of years, emerging a pale to rich creamy hue that is ideal for representing the bear's distinctive coat.

This precious polar bear necklace in silver and fossilized ivory also features a pin back, creating two pieces of jewelry in one. Wear it with one of our bear charm bracelets or a pair of polar bear carved ivory earrings for a complete set!
