Recycled Horn Teardrop Earrings

Simple, yet elegant. The different natural earth tones in teardrop shade are a great accent. We recommend rectangle earrings for women who wants to looks taller.

These earrings feature the natural horn texture, unique to each piece with a hypoallergenic back finding in Peruvian sterling black silver 925 (Plata quemada) to bring out a rustic style. Like all of our jewelry, these are handmade by artisans in Peru.

Size:  Height: 1.7″ x Width: 0.5″
Back finding:  French wire hook

Color:  variable natural coloring ranging from black, dark brown, beige, tan and white.

Materials:  Earring is recycled, polished cow horn. An ideal substitute for the shells of turtle which is endangered. Metal back is Peruvian sterling
black silver 925.

Production: 
 Preparing to work the bull horn is arduous. This jewelry piece took approximately 2 days by a single family workshop to complete.  All production was done in the suburban  of Lima region of Peru.

Carbon Footprint:  The production and transportation of this jewelry resulted in 9 pounds of CO2 emission, roughly equivalent to driving 10 miles in a car.  This is a Carbon Zero product as its footprint has been offset through the purchase of carbon credits.

Each of our jewelry pieces is handmade by a single family of Peruvian artisans.  Having known them for years, we’re happy to build a working relationship on the spirit of fair trade and friendship.   The price you pay assures a fair living wage for the artisans involved in production.
