Tagua Nuts-also known as Vegatable Ivory-are seeds that come from the Phytelephas Macrocarpa palm tree native to South American rainforests. Before the plants mature, the nuts are soft and resemble the flavor of coconut! Once dried, the texture is hard and dense and is traditionally carved like ivory, hense its common name "Vegetable Ivory." These earrings are made with a superior Brazilian tagua colored with a specialized Italian dye.
Nut slices naturally vary in size and shape.
