Vincent Zealandia jewelry is made from ancient fossilized walrus and mammoth ivory. These animals have been deceased from anwhere between 500 to over 15,000 years, and their ivory has lain in the earth or permafrost for centuries where it gathers its unique coloring from the surrounding environment.
As of 1989 all imports of African elephant ivory into the United States, in any form, are banned. Zealandia respects and supports all laws and conservation efforts created to protect elephants and endangered animals worldwide. Zealandia has never traded in elephant or endangered ivory and stands entirely in opposition to the practice. All of their ivory is sourced from ancient animals long ago deceased or extinct.
