New in the shop Tagua Nut necklaces

A beautiful POP of color with the Multi Colored Tagua necklace. This piece has 5 Tagua Nut's that are attached to a beautiful 18 inch chunky sterling silver chain. This necklace is a One Of A Kind as each Tagua nut is slightly different, you will receive the necklace pictured.

Tagua Nuts – also known as Vegetable Ivory are seeds that come from the tropical rainforest of South America. The seeds are sliced, dyed and polished. Each Tagua Nut is unique and has it's own variations making each a one of a kind seed. Tagua Nuts are very close to the density of animal ivory. Tagua is replacing the slaughter of mammal ivory (elephants and other) in the textile and fashion industries. In one year, one tagua palm produces as much ivory as an average female African elephant. No HARM is done to the nature and hundreds of families are employed by the Tagua nut production market. Tagua Nuts are thin, lightweight and durable.
