hello ,
je pense que ce n'est pas de l'os , ni de l'ivoire - l'os n'a pas de lignes , l'ivoire serait un peu jaune et peut être craquelé ( voir à la loupe ) et l'angle au niveau du perçage serait plus doux et pas écaillé .
I think it's not bone , nor ivory - bone has no lines , ivory would be yellow ( ish ) , maybe with some parallel cracks ( to see very close ) and the edge of hole would be soft , not scaled .
we had at home a real ivory necklace , the beads were ( are often ) not regular in shape and not that white .
