Welcome to our lil' Ruby Lane shoppe ! We specialize in beautiful & unusual antique & vintage hand-carved Genuine Ivory Jewelry, so please be sure to check out our entire shoppe for all our unique Ivory Treasures before you go !
This incredible Genuine Ivory necklace is from the 1800's, and features a breath-taking hand-carved HUGE Dieppe Ivory Cross with 5 delicate Blooming Roses and beautifully detailed elevated leaves ! This magnificent Victorian Pendant measures a GIANT 2.5" diagonally, and a very 3-dimensional .5" deep !
A jewel of a find for any Collector !
And this glorious Ivory Maltese Cross is hung on a 19.4" necklace of also-Genuine-Ivory Links--and the Genuine Elephant Tusk Ivory links are all intact ! (It's incredibly rare for all the links to be intact like this ! You normally see a few links attached with thread or metal links where some have broken in the past.) It has had its original screw clasp replaced with wire loops, so the Ivory Chain doesn't twist when you screw it together !
Distinct criss-cross Ivory graining is visible in the carving of the Roses Cross, as well as in the Chain Links---Guaranteed to be Genuine Antique Elephant Tusk Ivory !
A truly RARE & valuable example of hand-carved Ivory Artistry, easily worth $1,400 or more in today's Antique Marketplace. Very well stored and cared for through-out more than a century, it is in Excellent Condition with a luscious deep & rich age patina !
And don't forget, since the ban on new Ivories over 25 years ago, Ivory is a non-replenishable material, so what currently exists is all there is---and is exactly why vintage and antique Ivory is so valuable today !
Note: Ivory cannot be shipped internationally. New California legislation prevents California residents from buying or selling ivory.
