Description

Tagua Nuts come grow on a palm tree in South America where they are currently employing around 35,000 indigenous population.  These people are less needing to rely on cutting down rainforest in order to make room for farmland so they can eat.

The nut is first harvested, then allowed to dry for around two years.  They are then sliced and polished then finally coloured using vibrant dyes.

 

The tagua nut is also replacing the use of animal tusks in the fashion and other industries and is therefore known as vegetable ivory.

 

Each tagua nut slice has sterling silver wirework and comes on a sterling silver chain.
