En Tribe Earrings in Gold Plated Brass & Buffalo Bone
A subtle statement maker characterised by geometric artistry, the En Tribe earrings are an amalgam of the rebellious and elemental. Match with pieces from our En Tribe story or sport a singular, minimal look. Glistening gold plated brass encompasses earthy hand-carved buffalo bone for a sublime pairing of the elements.
Sourced only from naturally perished buffalo, the soul of this majestic beast lives on in our hand-crafted pieces. Use of buffalo bone in jewellery was first recorded thousands of years ago, with Native American tribes hunting the animal for food, using its skins for warmth and carving its bones for ceremonial breastplates, chokers and tribal adornment. Regarded as a sacred animal, the buffalo was revered for its powerful traits – strength, endurance and courage – and by wearing bone jewellery it was believed the wearer would be enhanced by these qualities. Our sustainably sourced bone pieces carry on this ancient tradition but with a contemporary edge, melding the earthy soul of the buffalo with gleaming sterling silver and radiant gold-plate.
