*3 Inuit eskimo Yupik walrus earrings*

Three Alaskan Inuit fossil walrus ivory earrings.
Front and side views shown. VERY RARE!!! $100/each.
The first, longest piece, has SOLD.

*5 tutuq tootuk Alaskan walrus ivory ancient labrets*
*5 tutuq Alaskan fossilized walrus ivory ancient Yupik Inuit labrets*
*5 tutuq Alaskan walrus ivory ancient Inuit Yupik Thule labrets*

Five tutuq (aka tootuk) Alaskan walrus ivory ancient labrets.
Each is unique, and I hand-chose them for specific reasons:
The first two are small and intact, with good patinas, and are still very wearable. $125/each.
The middle one is the same, but made out of a walrus tooth instead of a tusk! $200.
The fourth one is very dark as it is quite old and has been buried the longest. $200.
The last one with a rare very smooth polished front is not for sale.
Front, side, and back views shown.

Old fossilized walrus ivory labret from St. Lawrence Island, Alaska.
Carved out of a tooth! $200.
Each side and the back (flare) views are shown.
The other tooth piece shown above center would make a nice set of these.
If you would like to buy both pieces, we would mark them down to make both for $300.

*Inuit labret labrette fossil walrus ivory tutuq*

Fossilized walrus ivory Inuit labrets!
Old labrets are shown for $95 or $75/each.
From Shishmaref, Alaska.

*Inuit Alaska bone 4 curved tusks*

Inuit Alaskan bone curved tusks
(old artifacts, probably not originally used for septums but for another utilitarian purpose).
They are all between 00ga and 7/16", and are merely $15/each.
The top piece has SOLD.

*wholesale versus retail prices reminder*

Pre-Columbian gold septum pieces.
These come mounted in a Riker mount display box with a museum-style descriptive card.
These are amazing collector's pieces - some of the most gorgeous pieces to pass through our acquisitions!

*3 Uraba Columbian gold septums nose piercing* *3 Uraba Colombia gold septums*

Three very different Colombia (circa 800 to 1000 CE Uraba) pre-Columbian gold septum pieces.
Both the front and back views are shown.
The top one is 3-3/4" long and has some good weight to it; like sheet metal rather than foil. SOLD
The middle cutie has thin wings projecting from each side. $500.
The bottom piece is the most compact; probably 4ga minimum to insert. $400.
These pieces are the same price for wholesale and retail customers - no mark-up!

*Panama Veraguas gold septum ring front view* *Panama gold septum ring back view*

The front and back views are shown for this septum piece,
which harkens from Panama (Veraguas, circa 500 to 1100 CE).
It is a heavy high karat gold foil over a (probably) copper core.
It is round in cross-section and c-shaped overall, with a small gap at the bottom to allow for insertion.
Tiny gaps or pits in the outer foil near the bottom opening are windows into the inner part of the piece which exhibits a green patina. It is otherwise in very good condition.
This is a very large and heavy gorgeous example of this type of septum ring.
It weighs 31.2 grams, or 1.1 oz (much of which is the weight of the core, rather than the gold itself).
Overall, it measures between 1-3/16" and 1-1/4" from left to right,
and between 1" and 1-1/16" from top to bottom.
It is approximately 3/8" thick at the top, and just over 3/8" near the gap.
$2000.
Same price for wholesale and retail customers - no mark-up!

*small Peru Salinar pre-columbian gold septum*

This septum piece is from Peru (Salinar, circa 400 to 200 BCE).
It is made from a thick flat hammered sheet of gold, is flat in cross-section and oval shaped overall, with a gap at the top; the metal is flexible to allow for insertion. It is rather sturdy, and is not as thin as foil:
the thickness measures approximately 26ga at it's thinnest points along the edges of the piece.
Overall, it measures 1-1/2" from left to right, and 1-5/16" from top to bottom.
It weighs 6.3 grams, or 0.22 oz.
$700.
Same price for wholesale and retail customers - no mark-up!
