"Elephant Lovers Earrings"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

White Elephant, cow bone, dangle earrings have detail as pictured. The size is perfect for being attractive and eye-catching, depending on hair style, when worn. I had a problem: Both earrings were placed facing the same direction which did not look good. However, I was easy to fix the problem...just took the elephant off and turned it around and put it back on the ear lobe attachment. Good value. Happy with purchase.

This bone carved face of Budah is attractively displayed with gem stones for her crown of filigreed silver. Youll love the detailed work from top to bottom to back of this amazing piece of jewelry.
