It is with great sadness I'd like to announce Dr. Hanneman passed away on December 12, 2020. His legacy will live on forever!

Does anyone know if it's okay to travel wearing personal ivory jewellery?

Yes, you can wear, own it, gift it, but you can not sell it.

I personnally would avoid crossing borders with ivory jewelry.
Countries members of CITES prohibit importation and exportation of elephant ivory, unless you have a special authorization (for scientific purposes).
So you run the risk of having your ivory items confiscated by customs, even if you claim they are your personal property.
