Sterling silver & water buffalo horn
Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
The "dancing fin" in this pic is pretty. I was actually disappoint because it sold out and I didnt like the details in the other pair. Was thrilled to see they got more....or so I thought. I got sent the other ones that were in stock that I didnt like. From what i understood and read up on internet it is suppose to be carved from buffalo horn. If im not mistaken they seem to be plastic. Not only that but its explained the metal is sterling silver. I didnt feel from first sight they were. Instead of sending them back I gave them to my sister because I knew she'd like them. She had an immediate reactions to the NICKLE (shes allergic to) as soon as she put them in her ears. They're nice but know what you're buying.
The earrings were very unique because of the material they were made from and the style. I a, always looking for unique items for gifts. It tells a person that you took the time to find something special
These are unique and I like that. I have not received any compliments on them but I think that's because they hide in my hair. They do sometimes flip around backwards, which still looks cool, but I find myself having to turn them back around every do often.
