We tell you all about vegetable ivory 

These earrings are made 100% by hand in natural seeds of vegetable ivory and conceal a traditional know-how. The seed is produced by a palm tree that grows in the middle of the tropical forest. Once fallen from the tree, the seed is harvested, and becomes as hard as wood. It is then polished, cut and tinted to become your earrings.

Vegetable ivory is very resistant but at the same time very light. It is a real alternative to the plastic of costume jewelry. Handmade by women in the Ecuadorian Andes region, its manufacture contributes to their emancipation. These earrings are good for you, for them and for the planet!

All of our jewelry is handcrafted by our partner artisans.
