Hand-carved one-piece tagua square bold rings with no shell.
Tagua is a nut that comes from the Phytelepas Aequatorialis tree, which is a species of the palm tree family. Once dry from the sun, the nuts harden and resemble ivory, hence the name Rainforest, or vegetable ivory. Harder than tropical hardwoods, each tagua nut has a unique grain structure, sometimes resembling African Mahogany or Birdseye Maple.
