Two thinly sliced tagua rectangles are juxtaposed to create these cute dangle earrings. A bit of rind from the tagua seed is visible at the top and bottom edges of the rectangles. Surgical steel findings. These tagua earrings are sustainable, organic, vegan and biodegradable: 100% vegetable ivory (Tagua seeds). These tagua earrings are fair trade and ethically handmade in Colombia.
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: “Vegetable Ivory”.
