Statement black onyx full nuts tagua chunky necklace.
Tagua is also known as the vegan ivory, because it's natural color and texture resembles ivory.
This model in nut drop medallion, crystal and bronze pearls and perfect big tagua pearls is vintage from early 60s made in Ecuador. Has an Art Deco style.
The length is 16 inches , closes with lobster clasp and stringed in wire the black straps are leather.
Tagua nut was very popular material in the making of buttons, and classic chunky pearls jewelry, mixed with crystal and semiprecious stones before the arrival of the plastics, the bakelite and Lucite resulted to be more affordable than the natural nuts and practically this was the end of the tagua jewelry.
It apparently ended , until late 90s when the eco conscious public supported the organic products and produce and was in search for sustainable ecofriendly fair products , then the tagua nut entered again in the fashion scene.
I have been creating ecofriendly tagua nut jewelry since 2010 and this piece is a vintage piece recovered from many of the beautiful pieces I grow up watching my grandma wearing.
She was a beautiful woman with a strong presence and charisma. I want to create jewelry to empower women and level up their feeling of self confidence when they wear my jewelry.
