The Defender Ring
Start a conversation about conservation. Tusks are an elephant's defense, Ivory Free Defender statement rings are a symbol of respect and the value of tusks where they belong, on elephants. Spread the word to join the herd.
African elephants are the largest of land animals, possessing a gentle power, protective nature, intelligence and patience. While they remain pillars of strength in the animal kingdom, they need our attention and help. Through the demand for ivory and ivory products, an average of 33 000 elephants are lost to poaching every year.
$33 from each sterling silver and vermeil Defender piece is donated to WildAid in support of elephant conservation, and to raise awareness of the elephant poaching crisis, support lawmakers in banning ivory sales, and measurably reduce demand for ivory.
