Ruby Passerine - Vessel Tusk Neckpiece

1,800.00

Inspired by Bavarian charivari: heirloom hunting trophies that were collected on watch chains and traditionally adorned the front of lederhosen. These amulets were treasured family objects, the chains were added to and passed down over generations. The pieces in this new collection utilize relics, stones, and coins long held in my personal archives, now ready to be passed to you.

This stunning African wild boar tusk features delicately-detailed scrimshaw, and has been set in a heavy solid sterling setting studded with garnets. The top has been adorned with a double-terminated raw ruby crystal, set high above ornate scroll work and large silver grains.

The top is hinged and opens to reveal a hidden compartment within. Large enough to stash a few special objects, herbs, or notes. Closes with a tension clasp.

The underside of the lid has been stamped with MF and .925 Sterling.

The large ornate bail features a brilliant faceted Ethiopian opal that displays a full color spectrum, and changes hues at different angles.

Details:
-Chain measures 22 inches long, 4.2 mm wide and is fully adjustable, can be worn at choker-length or below the sternum. Soldered links, uses a lobster clasp closure.
-Entire necklace weighs approximately 126 grams.
-.925 Sterling and .999 Fine Silver
-Tusk pendant measures approximately 5.5 inches from bail to tip.

Care:
As with all handmade and one-of-a-kind jewelry, utmost care should be taken to keep jewelry clean and dry. Never wear your pieces while bathing, swimming, or washing dishes to avoid having them submerged in water. Bones and stones are porous and susceptible to become weak when they get wet. Metals can tarnish and lose their patinas more quickly if they get wet or washed with chemicals frequently. Also, please remove your pieces before any strenuous activities as they are fragile and parts could be knocked loose or fall out. Treat your jewelry like the unique piece of art that it is and it will remain in good condition for ages.

Shipping and Policies: This item is ready to ship. Please allow 1-3 days while your payment clears before being shipped. Please read both my shipping and policies pages before making your purchase.
