You are looking at a pair of Dayak earrings from the island of Borneo! These are replicas made by indigenous people based on older traditional styles of earweights worn for centuries by these people. The older, original pieces can some times be found, but for HUNDREDS of dollars. These are an excellent alternative to the older, more expensive pairs that are getting rarer and more expensive every year!
The design of these earrings is called "Gasing" which is the Dayak word for spinning top. Its is a motif that is found in their jewelry, art, architecture, and of course they actually do make spinning tops!
Unlike the older varieties these are hollow castings, and are made of bronze and or brass, usually having a high copper content so the hue of the metal really varies in each of these.Sometimes darker, sometimes lighter, some times more yellow, green or red. The picture posted is not a stock photo and is what you are actually getting!
These weights are usually pretty expensive on most websites or in tattoo/piercing shops, and you never know what you are getting. I pick the most high quality wearable pieces, and the ones that don't meet my requirements get set aside to be reworked to bring them up to standards, and are usually a hair bit more expensive.

These weights are 2 ounces on average, and the wearing surface can be wrapped in cotton cloth and/or string to make them more comfortable for wearing as well as reduce wear and tear on your ear lobes. Please wear these with caution and respect! They are meant for healed and enlarged piercings ONLY!
All items are shipped priority mail with delivery confirmation and packed with care! Shipping turnaround is with 3 days or less! If you would like to have them shipped first class to save money please let me know and we can arrange something.
