A gorgeous statement necklace from our Luxe Collection: A single whole Tagua seed is drilled through the middle and dyed blue. A gold cast (24k gold-plated brass) is placed through some of its surface creating a fantastic hybrid of natural vegetable ivory and gold in a single piece. This gold and tagua seed hangs from several multi-color cotton strands that are clustered together at the back with a looped string that ends with a gold sphere button for closure. An uncommon, chic design that goes well with any outfit. Tagua seeds are sustainable, organic, vegan and biodegradable: 100% vegetable ivory. *All of our tagua jewelry is fair trade and handmade. *Materials used: tagua seeds, 24k gold-plated brass and cotton cord *Organic and vegan necklace. Each Tagua seed is unique, like a fingerprint, slight variations in color, shape, and size are natural characteristics of all our products and should be expected. Individual uniqueness is guaranteed. When ripe, tagua seeds are harvested and dried for 6 to 9 months. After losing all their moisture they become rock solid resembling ivory in color, texture, and hardness, hence their nickname: â€œVegetable Ivoryâ€. At this point the hard seeds can be polished, dyed, cut, and shaped into beautiful beads that become Florama natural jewelry.
