Hand carved horn earrings : Western Bohemian & GARUDA have been working with traditional artists for over a decade to create these amazing earrings.
We start with the careful selection of the buffalo horn, then carve each piece by hand, one at a time. The earrings are polished to a fine, soft finish with a slightly oily appearance that makes them look amazing, and you, too.

What's the best way to put the earrings on?
Gently hold the earring around your ear lobe. Insert the post so it is through both the front of the earring and into the opening of your ear piercing. Twist the post and gently and insert it through your piercing and the back of the earrings, wiggling it slightly until it finds its way through. Make the post feel snug, but not to tight. Please don't try to force them.The posts should be snug, but not jammed in. Be gentle.
About this WATER BUFFALO HORN
LATIN NAME: bubalus bubalis.
ORIGIN: South-East Asia
HARVESTING PRACTICE: The horn we carve is left from farming practice.
OTHER DETAILS: Recycled. The water buffalo of South East Asia is a domesticated animal. It is used to plow fields and carry heavy loads. The buffalo are well treated and important to the survival of the native people. When they are too old to work, they are eaten and all parts are utilized. These are never taken only in pursuit of the horn.
Care of your earrings:
Horn is very much like your hair or fingernails in nature, and requires care. The horn needs to be conditioned, and should be oiled for protection. This will maintain the color and preserve the smooth surface. You should clean the earrings as needed with a very mild soap, dry them well, and condition them with jojoba oil or another organic jewelry care product. Taking care of your natural earrings every month of wear will help them last a lifetime.
Please don't store them in direct sun, damp or wet places, or places that are extremely hot, they can warp or curl or crack from extreme conditions.
