What is Keum Boo???
Because of the similiarities of the two pure unalloyed precious metals they bond together well on a molecular level. It is an ancient Korean technique called Keum Boo or Kumboo. In the Korean language 'KEUM' means gold and the word 'BOO' means applied. This technique was originally used to line to inside of the eating spoons of the royality as it was thought to be auspecious and healthfull to eat from pure gold. I don't know but maybe some of these benefits can also be absorbed by wearing the earrings.
These earrings are made to order and the photos are very similar to the ones you will actually receive. This work is handmade by myself.....
i've tried to take photos at several angles, under various different lighting conditions and backgrounds in order to most accurately and fully represent this piece but if you would like to see other images or have any questions just let me know...
all of my work comes packaged in either a gift box or a small cloth drawstring pouch; just tell me your preferance in the "note to seller" during the checkout process...
i care about where I live so all my precious metals are made from
100% recycled material... 'The Harmony Line' from Hoover&Strong...
