This mamoth ivory cross reminds me of my Irish roots. The celtic cross has had a place in history dating back to the early middle ages. As a symbol of Christianity, this simple cross design is humble as it contains no other decorations – its beauty is in its simplicity.
This Celtic Cross is hand carved from chocolate brown bark mammoth ivory. The ivory has a slight curve to it and it lays comfortably against your skin. Delicate looking, but sturdy, this piece stands 1 ¼” high x ¾” wide and hangs from a 20 “ argentium silver chain. Argentium silver is sterling with alloys that make it tarnish proof. This piece is packaged in a gift box.
Note: The Mammoth ivory in this pendant was found in Russia and came to the US by way of China. Russian mammoth ivory is some of the finest in the world. Estimates on the age of mammoth ivory is around 10,000 years old. Mammoth ivory is legal to import and export and sell in most US states except for a few states, therefore I will not sell or ship this item to HI, NV, IL, CA, NY, NJ, NH, VT, or DC.
A refund will be issued if the shipping or credit card address is any of these states.
