Each of my tie clips are handmade from the most beautiful and rare woods from around the world and is made one at a time by me, in my home shop. Because woods can vary greatly in color and figure, yours will be unique in grain and color from the picture. It measures roughly 0.36" wide and is hand buffed with a wax and shellac blend.
The Pink Ivory tree grows predominantly in Zimbabwe, Mozambique and South Africa. The tree is protected and sustainably maintained in South Africa, only felled by very limited permit. The wood is extremely hard, with a density of 990 g/dm³. Pink Ivory was the royal tree of the Zulu People and only members of the royal family were allowed to possess it until the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879. Before the Anglo-Zulu War, the Zulu king (and prior to 1818, Zulu chiefs) would possess a pink ivory knob kerry, a stick with one end a knob, and wear jewelry that were also made from pink ivory. According to rumor, non-royals who possessed the wood would summarily be put to death.
