Earring design based on the distinctive native New Zealand Kererū (wood pigeon). NOTE: We have created an updated version of this design that is slightly smaller which is therefore lighter to wear, and improved the clarity of the detail. Have a look here.
Solid recycled Sterling Silver or Copper with double sided design and finished with recycled Sterling Silver hooks with rubber stoppers for extra security.
The Kererū is a clumsy flier but has lovely colourful plumage and it is easy to get up close for a good look. The scourge of fruit orchards where they love to snack on the fresh blossoms of the trees in spring. They are an important seed disperser for native trees.
Earring Length: 41mm (1.6in), Hook length: 14mm (0.6 in).
