Fossilized Mammoth Ivory with Sterling Silver Mermaid Pendant on 18” Cable Chain 1 3/4”h x 1/3”w
This intricate design incorporates prehistoric Mammoth Tusk ivory. Now extinct, the Mammoth roamed the earth until about 10,000 years ago. The ivory is excavated along the Bering Sea coast of Alaska by Eskimo families and then sent to Bali, Indonesia where each piece is handcrafted by native artists.
Care: Due to the natural state of the ivory, use only a soft cleaning cloth to polish any metal. Do not use jewelry cleaners, chemicals, soaps, or detergents. Avoid extreme heat, moisture, and soaking.
