Celebrate the magic of the forest with tagua nut necklace. Tagua slice is dyed and laser engraved with a stylized tree. Also known as “vegetable ivory,” tagua is produced by a palm-like tree in South America. The nuts fall to the ground when mature, thus harvesting does not damage the trees. With close, hard grain, tagua nut resembles fine ivory.Cultural tradition and forest preservation combine in the use of this renewable resource.
