    3-to-6 pieces designed around a few specific pieces, colors and types of Fossil Ivories that you will find incredibly beautiful.


    None of our Ivory is contemporary, and not a single animal has been killed, culled, or otherwise harmed to produce our Fossil Ivories. It is the only perfect, ecologically sound, humane way to wear warm, wonderful and enduring ivory.

    As has been our studio policy for over 30 years,
    every piece is unconditionally guaranteed to please,
    or your money will be cheerfully refunded.
