Tagua Nut Collection

Tagua Nut Collection

 

The Tagua nut is a magical nut native to the Amazon Rainforest. The inside of the nut has a remarkable resemblance to ivory, making it an ethical alternative to extremely unethical ivory. The nuts fall to the earth when ready, making their collection convenient and safe. Artisans native to this region use this abundant and sustainable material to create beautiful jewelry and sculptures.

Our Tagua Nut Collection is filled with treasures, like tiny birds carved out of the nut that showcase its natural beauty. The jewelry is gorgeous, with natural textures combining with modern shapes. The organic nature of the material makes Tagua nut necklaces ideal for those with metal allergies. Art and jewelry that is sustainable and eco-friendly, what could be better than that?
