The Tagua nut is a dried seed from the Tagua palm tree, which grows in the tropical rain forests of South America (Ecuador, Colombia, Peru and Brazil). Marcia Helman crafts a wide variety of vibrant modern jewellery exclusively for Melko. Taguas’s modern shapes and forms are instantly recognisable pieces of wearable art. No two seeds are equal making every piece unique in colour and in shape.
The Tagua seed is harvested after falling to the ground, which does not damage the ecological environment.
