Pelagic Time Traveler Tahitian Stormy Earrings
Lustrous Kamoka pearls sustainably harvested from Ahe's pristine lagoon are paired with time-blackened fossil shark's teeth from the Miocene Epoch (approximately 23 to 5 million years old). A happy customer has dubbed these pieces "sea angels."
The teeth are hand harvested by collectors diving along the Florida coast from ancient mud beds.
These two ocean gems from radically different points in time are mounted on Sterling silver wire and dangle from Sterling silver ear wires. The imperfect, round, stormy blue silver pearls measure 8.8mm.
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.
