Su Necklace in Sterling Silver & Buffalo Bone
The Su Necklace offers a strong geometric look with minimal lines and a sleek buffalo bone cabochon arrow head. A sterling silver casing and bar detail joins seamlessly to the sterling silver snake chain for effortless suspension. Infused with the essence of Majaji, the warrior Queen.
Sourced only from naturally perished buffalo, the soul of this majestic beast lives on in our hand-crafted pieces. Use of buffalo bone in jewellery was first recorded thousands of years ago, with Native American tribes hunting the animal for food, using its skins for warmth and carving its bones for ceremonial breastplates, chokers and tribal adornment. Regarded as a sacred animal, the buffalo was revered for its powerful traits – strength, endurance and courage – and by wearing bone jewellery it was believed the wearer would be enhanced by these qualities. Our sustainably sourced bone pieces carry on this ancient tradition but with a contemporary edge, melding the earthy soul of the buffalo with gleaming sterling silver and radiant gold-plate.
