Elephant Spirit EarringsSKU: E076
Silver hoops to pay homage to the elephant.
Our Elephant ‘Spirit’ Earrings are created with synthetic wire inside the silver. This wire is symbolic of elephant hair.
Our Elephant Spirit Earrings pay homage and respect to these majestic and intelligent creatures which have inspired this design.
Elephant hair was traditionally used to create woven rings and bracelets which were then given as gifts to signify good luck.
However, this practice is very cruel to elephants. Tail hair and even their eye lashes were taken to make tourist trinkets across Africa and Asia. Elephants need their tail hairs to help swish flies and bugs away and eyelashes to protect their sensitive eyes.
Sadly, these hairs also never grow back.
We can now celebrate the elephant and choose to do so in an ethical way which does them no harm.
