Three tagua coins linked together by small steel rings. They hang from stylish long hooks that complete the design adding length and character. Surgical steel findings. These 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”. At this point the hard seeds can be polished, dyed, cut and shaped into beautiful beads.
