Handmade in Scotland from Amazonian tagua nuts. Vegetable Ivory, also known as Tagua, is a valuable seed from a Brazilian palm tree. Each fruit contains 4-9 seeds, ranging from olive to avocado size. Pretty Pink Eco-Jewellery prioritise the ecosystem, leaving the first fruit for birds and harvesting the seeds by hand after two years. After sun-drying for three months, it can be carved and coloured, similar to real ivory. Unlike real ivory, Vegetable Ivory is a sustainable resource that supports our planet and people. Researchers have found that its cultivation prevents deforestation and provides jobs for 35,000 people in the Amazon rainforest.
These earrings come with a lovely eco-friendly and fair trade bag, perfect for gift giving. Additionally, care instructions and a detailed description of the seeds and nuts used are included.
As each piece is natural and one-of-a-kind, slight variations in colour, texture, and size only enhance their unique charm.
Please note that any pierced earrings including earring pendants are non-returnable for reasons of hygiene and safety.
