Pink Ivory- (Rhamnus zeyheri - South Africa) No, not the tusk from a pink elephant, but a beautiful wood from Mozambique. Pink Ivory, with its pale to hot pink coloring and lovely grain figure, is extremely rare and very difficult to find. Called "the royal wood of the Zulus" because of its importance in local customs. Expensive!
Classic, timeless, heirloom quality hair jewelry.
Can also be used as a shawl pin or sweater pin
