Gently hold the bone earring around your ear lobe with the post of the earrings started so it is through both the front of the earring and into the opening of your ear piercing.

WATER BUFFALO BONE LATIN NAME: bubalus bubalis. ORIGIN: South-East Asia HARVESTING PRACTICE: The bone and horn we use is left from food production and farming practice. OTHER DETAILS: Recycled. The water buffalo of South East Asia is a domesticated animal. It is used to plow fields and carry loads. They are well treated and important to the survival of the native people. When they are too old to work, they are eaten and all part of the animal are utilized. They are never taken only for the bones.
Care of your natural bone earrings:
Try not to drop them. The bone does not need to be conditioned, but may be oiled to protect the bone on occasion. Too much oiling will cause the color to deepen into a semi translucent yellowish ivory like tone, not bone white. This may also happen over time due to the natural oils of your skin absorbing into the material as it becomes a part of your daily life. If they become too dark for your taste, You can whiten them a little bit by soaking in peroxide mixed with baking soda, then thoroughly rinse and dry them.
