This perfectly petite 14KY solid gold Bull Shark Tooth Necklace will be your be your new go to piece.
While this necklace is more simple in style than the others in this new collection, there’s no mistaking its refined and delicate craftsmanship.
This piece is a cousin to style #1173. It opens the door to the world of solid gold jewelry. For centuries gold has been a common form of currency and civilizations have based their entire culture around it, from art to royal jewelry to religious rituals. Using solid gold for her jewelry line is a goal Elizabeth always strived to achieve, and this piece serves as the bridge between her old and new styles.
Every shark tooth in this collection was specifically chosen for its size, shape, and texture, which artist Elizabeth Sarah hand picked from her stash of thousands.
This specific fossilized shark tooth design belongs to our local shark species, the Bull Shark, and can be found combing our beaches of North Florida. This tooth specifically is from the bottom row of teeth, whereas the top row of teeth are typically more triangular as seen in style #998.
Elizabeth worked with a master jeweler as she learned the techniques applied in this new collection, and once the perfect tooth was chosen that best represented the idea she had for each style, she learned the process of making it into a mold. After the mold is set, it's then casted in 14KY gold.
The solid gold tooth picks up the natural imperfections and distinct features of the tooth - such as graininess of the root or curve of a fang.
We work with Mother Nature versus against her. What some people may see as flaws, we see as fingerprints, and we highlight these individual characteristics to show off their genuine beauty.
Each one of a kind necklace is thoughtfully intended to compliment not only the person wearing it but also celebrate the wonderful ocean at our backyard and forever close to our hearts.
