Ivory Beads, Pendants, & Jewelry

Can I buy beads and jewelry that are Genuine Elephant Ivory? Yes! These items were bought from antique dealers and collectors in the United States and come from supplies that were imported over 60 years ago. It is difficult to find these high quality ivory beads in excellent unused condition, most of these beads are available in limited numbers so get them while you can! Please note: US law does not allow us to ship ivory out of the country.
What is Fossilized Mammoth Ivory? Is it legal? Fossil ivory from walrus and mammoth is perfectly legal to buy, carve, sell, and wear! No modern mammals are harmed in the collection of this ivory. It is dug up, mined, and collected, not hunted. They are digging up Prehistoric Woolly Mammoth Fossils from under the ice and tundra in the Arctic Circle. They are salvaging the tusks, and using them for jewelry and decorative arts. We have some of these beads for sale. Natural earthy colors vary from creams to browns and sometimes there are splashes of blues and greens. It all depends upon the mineral absorption from where and how long the ivory was buried. They are legal to buy and sell, and considered more eco friendly by some. Mammoth ivory has been seen on fashionable runways and boutiques all over the world. They have a great look!
We also have some Walrus Tusk Ivory jewelry.
