A small sterling silver hoop with chipped tagua nut beads. Turquoise or multi available. The hoop has three gravels which can be worn individually or together. Tagua Nut is the dried seed pod of Ivory Palm, native to Brazil. Its hardened seeds lend themselves well to carving, slicing and drilling. Research has suggested that cultivation and harvesting of this Vegetable Ivory employs 35,000 people locally and prevents logging for soya planting.
