These earrings are an excellent gift idea for birthdays, stocking fillers or anniversaries. (Hint hint: Wood is the material for 5th anniversaries).
These round solid oak stud earrings have surgical steel posts (see other listings for earrings with sterling silver posts). Surgical steel is one of the best metals for piercings (the very best is titanium), as it doesn’t irritate the skin and is very good for people who suffer from allergies. I myself prefer surgical steel as my ears are easily irritated by other metals. The wood I use in my jewellery is reclaimed and every piece has its own history.
I hand saw and then sand each small piece of wood, which is less instant than laser cutting methods. I like that effort, passion and time has gone into each pair of earrings. When making jewellery by hand, no two pieces are exactly the same.
Grains and colours in the wood vary so earrings are paired together in best matches! These earrings come in two thicknesses (see photos and other posts). Chunky pairs are approximately 5mm thick and the delicate pairs are approximately 3mm thick.
I wear a pair of these regularly and always get compliments on them; they are really unique and made with minimal, timeless styling in mind.
Please note that these earrings come on heavy card packaging, but gift boxes are available on our listings.
