Tagua nut is sometimes likened to ivory although it is a nut! The nut comes from South America and is dried out for two months. It is then colored and cut creating this stunning, yet affordable necklace. Hand made, this necklace is eco-friendly, fair trade, unique and special.
When you purchase a tagua jewelry piece from our collection, you are making a “purchase with a purpose,” directly embracing the ethics of fair trade, contributing to the preservation of elephants, tropical rain forests and cultural traditions in addition to supporting native women's groups and communities that have been displaced by the violence of Colombia’s 50+ years of civil war.
