Every women love jewelry and how they make them feel. A simple shiny metal like sterling silver, a turquoise stone or a precious or semi-precious stone are jewelry materials to use in the making of jewelry ornaments that will please the desire of any women. 

Even though, jewelry is precious not every piece of jewelry is fit for every person. Careful selection is made each time anyone is purchasing a piece of  jewelry for an specific occasion or dress outfit. At times, price means nothing if you find that special piece! 

While thinking about selection for that special piece you want to wear, we have to make sure that our decision to have a precious jewelry don't go beyond our convictions. I am referring about purchasing Ivory jewelry or ornaments.

Here you find the reasons for Ivory to be on the prohibited jewelry to own. Promise not to buy is the promise that the most beautiful, sophisticated, precious design on a real ivory jewelry will not be worth it to buy if is at the sake of an animal sacrifice.

There are many articles and organization out there motivating the consumer to make a promise of 'not to buy' ivory.  Why?

Reasons Not to Buy Ivory Jewelry:

  • Ivory is prohibited, it is against the law, and you can be persecuted, even though in many Asian and African countries still selling ornaments of all sort made out of Ivory. Mostly in the black market.
  • As we know elephants tusks are used for obtaining ivory and according to the wildlife organization yearly 8% of the elephant population is poached.  
  • They have stated that elephants have slow rates of reproduction because they have longer pregnancies than almost any other mammal, approx. 22 months.  These findings indicate that their reproduction rates are not sufficient to sustain population numbers at the current poaching rates. This is why elephants are at higher risk of becoming endangered species according to the Wildlife Foundation and many other organizations pro wildlife.
  • Elephant are dying for the sake of materialism. Let's save the Elephants. Stop buying Ivory. Behind every ivory is a dead elephant. 

 Knowledge of this subject is important to make a wise decision when purchasing your jewelry or ornaments. I have created various link in this article to demonstrate the importance of saving our elephants and to make that promise of not buying ivory jewelry or ornaments.
