Our Tagua Tree of Life jewelry has been so popular that we couldn't resist adding this gorgeous new color.
People love wearing Tree of Life jewelry because of its beauty and symbolism. These earrings are handcrafted by women in a fair trade cooperative in Colombia out of a carved piece of the tagua nut.
Tagua is often referred to as an ecological alternative to ivory. The tagua nut comes from the Ivory-nut Palm Tree in areas throughout the Amazon rainforest. Once dried, the nut can be carved and is then colored with non-toxic dyes and hand polished.
Measures approximately 1 1/4" around.
Please note that due to the handmade nature of these earrings and the unique shape of each tagua nut, sizes and shapes may vary.
Makes a beautiful set with our Tagua Tree of Life Necklace in Raspberry.
