Pelagic Time Traveler Keshi Earrings (Gold)

$168.00

Lustrous Kamoka keshi pearls sustainably harvested from Ahe's pristine lagoon are paired with time-blackened fossil lemon shark's teeth from the Miocene Epoch (approximately 23 to 5 million years ago) to create these unique earrings.
 
The teeth are hand harvested by collectors diving along the Florida coast from ancient mud beds. Keshi are natural pearls with no nucleus. See our Choosing A Pearl page for more information about Tahitian keshi pearls.
 
These two ocean gems from radically different points in time are mounted on non-tarnish silver filled wire and dangle from 14/20 gold filled ear wires. The silvery pewter Tahitian keshi pearls measure 10.5mm.
 
The earrings dangle 1 1/4 inch from the earwire.
  

 

      
Our Kamoka pearls are farmed in a lagoon teeming with sharks and we've happily seen the numbers increase over the years. We see sharks daily when we dive around the farm and their sleek beauty and awesomeness is a constant reminder of our humble place in the ocean's ecosystem. Living with sharks has taught us that these animals are something to respect more than to fear. It's an honor to share the lagoon with these strong predators, plus, their presence is one of the best indicators of a healthy reef system.
