Tagua Pink & Green Necklace 

Tagua products are handcrafted from a palm tree nut native to the lush tropical rainforests of Ecuador. Also referred to as the Ecuadorean Ivory Palm, the Tagua tree produces several bushels of seed pods a year with up to 100 Tagua nuts per pod. These nuts are then harvested, dried, and crafted into a wide range of products from vibrant modern jewelry, ornate figurines, to everyday items like shirt buttons. Also known as Vegetable Ivory, Tagua has the same appearance, density, and feel of animal ivory without doing any harm to any animals or the rainforests where it is gathered.

Tagua Jewelry is handmade and dyed using high-grade certified organic vegetable dyes imported from Italy. Our collections offer a wide range of bracelets, rings, earrings, necklaces, figurines, and key chains. Tagua products are Proposition 65 tested and certified. Due to the scarcity and uniqueness of each piece, no two pieces are exactly the same. Additionally, the colors and/or color combinations available may also vary.

Tagua products aid with the preservation of the Rainforest and its wildlife, since the tagua nut provides shelter and nourishment to forest animals like agoutis and squirrels. The left over materials and by-products of the tagua nut also help feed the livestock in the village. Additionally, the promotion and sale of tagua helps with the preservation of various mammals like elephants, whales, and walruses that have been slaughtered to near extinction for their ivory.
