Contemporary Tagua Stone Earrings
At Arlokea, we deeply care about the planet, which includes all its inhabitants, the wildlife, nature and of course the people. Not only is Arlokea committed to ethical labor, our entire line of tagua jewelry is animal cruelty-free. These incredible Tagua Stone Earrings are made from the tagua nut which is similar to ivory but better. To avoid the unethical collection of ivory from elephant tusks, we source a sustainable faux-ivory. The tagua nuts serve as a beautiful and authentic cruelty-free source of jewelry making.
Beautiful jewelry doesn’t have to be a compromise—smooth-ivory finish in two beautiful colors—Dewkist (aqua color) and Opal Gray.
Complete the look with our gorgeous Tagua Disc Necklace--available in four versatile colors.

How It's Made
Tagua is a seed that comes from the Tagua palm tree that only grows in the tropical rainforests of the South American Pacific coasts. When the nuts from the tree fall to the ground they are dried and become very hard. The tagua seed needs to be dried naturally to separate it from its shell. Once separated from the shell it has a dark skin that must be removed to reveal the ivory color. The tagua seed can then be cut into different shapes and forms. It is also possible to dye the seed in a variety of different natural colors. This process reveals the structure and veins of the pure cellulose material giving each piece an individual aspect and a natural look
