Tagua Beads - The Prettiest Alternative to Ivory



If you are a lover of fashion jewelry and have never heard of tagua beads, you are missing out, big time. Let me enlighten you: tagua beads, also called "exotic ivory" and "vegetable ivory", are made from the nuts of the tagua palm, a plant that grows in the rain forests of Ecuador.

Tagua jewelry looks and feels a lot like ivory, but is obtained in a much more peaceful way and no animals have to die in the process. However, the process itself is very laborious and fascinating. It starts with collecting and drying the seeds, which can take up to 60 days. Then the nuts are selected according to size and cut into slices. Then the slices are shaped and transformed into beads and buttons, polished and dyed using water based non-toxic dyes, then polished again. These natural beads also go through rigorous quality control at all stages of production.


On EcuadorianHands.com you can purchase necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings made out of tagua beads. They come in all shapes and sizes and some incredibly beautiful and original color combinations. 


They can be best defined as everyday statement jewelry. They are bold enough to get you noticed but are simple enough to be worn everyday with your favorite pair of jeans. But you know what they look best with? A flowing, light summer maxi dress in juicy tropical colors, a cocktail in your hand and sand between your toes. 


Oh, and the best part? Unlike real ivory, tagua beads are super affordable: you can get a pair of earrings for as low as $2.49 and a jewelry set for as low as $4.49! Isn't that incredible?


Also, a bonus: tagua bead jewelry can be laser engraved with logos, symbols and personalized messages. Order yours now and make it unique!
