Pelagic Time Traveler Tahitian Circled Earrings

$248.00

A lustrous Kamoka pearl, sustainably harvested from Ahe's pristine lagoon is paired with a time-blackened fossil mako shark's tooth from the Miocene Epoch (approximately 23 to 5 million years old). A happy customer has dubbed these pieces "sea angels."
 
These teeth were hand harvested by collectors diving along Peace River, Florida from ancient mud beds.
 
These two ocean gems from radically different points in time are mounted on Sterling silver wire. The imperfect, beautifully flashy copper-toned, circled pearls have striations of green, gold and reds. The pearls measure 10mm.
   

 

      
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.
