Ancient Mastodon Ivory
Our beautiful mermaid jewelry is created from ancient mastodon ivory and sterling silver. The mastodon was a large prehistoric creature which roamed the earth over 20,000 years ago. Resembling our modern day elephant, it had a long shaggy coat and large curved tusks, often exceeding ten feet in length. Now extinct, their remains are occasionally unearthed in the northern hemisphere with long, ivory tusks intact. Over the centuries, the ivory has taken on a variety of colors including tans and grays which give each piece a unique quality. This ivory, being scarce and difficult to work, makes a truly unique collectible with a history all its own.
*These items also have touches of gold filled.
