This wave motif necklace is a classic from our carved ivory pendant collection featuring sterling silver embellished with a wave like lotus pattern and an ancient ivory accent.
The sterling silver arm is worked in a relief style, the background a softly oxidized contrast to the central wave lotus pattern. The pattern itself is abstract—inspired by water and by the graceful lines of the opening lotus flower. This carved ivory pendant may signify emergence, blooming, and the act of coming into one's own for the wearer.
The top accent is carved out of fossilized mammoth tusk, a prized ancient material that is over 15,000 years old. Over the centuries, the earth's minerals have colored the mammoth tusk in rich shades from warm caramel to cocoa. If buried in permafrost, the mammoth tusk retains much of its original cream colored luster. Its rarity and ancient story make mammoth ivory a valued addition to artisan works and fine jewelry pieces such as this carved ivory pendant.
As each piece of mammoth tusk ivory may vary in color and variegation, the mammoth tusk in your pendant may vary from what is pictured here. We hand select all our materials to ensure the utmost quality and finish.
This pendant comes with an 18" sterling silver 1.1 mm box chain with a secure sterling silver lobster clasp.
This pendant has matching earrings.
