Can you believe Fall will be here in 2 weeks? It is about time to start digging out Fall clothes and decor or if you’re like me- it’s time to go shopping. I love what each season brings, but I especially love Fall. There is just something about the colors and scents. So in honor of Fall fashion, I want to introduce you to a jewelry line called Palma Collection.
Palma Collection is a Eco-friendly company who handcrafts fabulous jewelry made from tagua nuts. Tagua nuts are from the Phytelephas tree, which are also known as ivory palms. Tagua nuts have a similar cellular structure to animal ivory and can be easily carved- with no elephants harmed! The tagua nuts are only found along the South American Coast which makes them a rarity! Check out the video below on how the nuts are turned into exquisite jewelry!
What drew me to Palma Collection, besides being Eco-friendly, were the exotic colors of their jewelry. Each Palma Collection piece blew me away with their stunning vividness and unique designs. All of the dyes used in making Palma Collection jewelry are non-toxic. This is especially important if you have an infant who might end up putting the dyed tagua nut pieces in their mouth. I really had a hard time choosing which color I wanted to review since they all were so beautiful.
Palma Collection sent me a Hosono Necklace in Lime Green to review and I’m seriously in love! The strap looks and feels like it is suede, but it is cotton. So there are absolutely no animals harmed for the sake of Palma Collection fashion. The Hosono has several tagua nut slivers that dangle at different lengths and you can adjust the strap.The circle can be worn as a choker or lower like in the picture above. I wore it to a Fall festival today and was asked several times which vendor I bought it from. The tagua nut slices are soft and almost silky, kind of like a oyster shell. It is very light weight and I forgot I was even wearing it. I hate when I wear a longer necklace and I feel it pulling all of the time. The Hosono Necklace comes in 6 radiant colors, though no necklace will be exactly identical. Palma Collection has a huge variety of necklaces, bracelets and earrings, so be sure to see them all!
Since I’ve had 2 amazing weeks of Eco-friendly kid stuff, I want to share the Eco-love with all of you mommies!
