These naturally beautiful earrings are rounded Tagua chips with rind on the edges, dyed black (Surgical steel findings). Our black tagua earrings are fun and uncommon, a natural chic accessory that goes well with any outfit. Each tagua chip is sustainable, organic, vegan, and biodegradable: 100% vegetable ivory (Tagua seeds)
When ripe, tagua seeds are harvested and dried for 6 to 9 months. After losing all their moisture they become rock solid resembling ivory in color, texture, and hardness, hence their nickname: “Vegetable Ivory”. At this point, the hard seeds can be polished, dyed, cut, and shaped into beautiful beads that become Florama’s natural jewelry. Each Tagua seed is unique, like a fingerprint, slight variations in color, shape, and size are natural characteristics of all our products and should be expected. Individual uniqueness is guaranteed.
