Bone Jewelry - Carved Jewelry

What's the best way to put the bone earrings on? 

Gently hold the earring around your ear lobe. Get the post of the earrings started so it is through both the front of the earring and into the opening of your ear piercing. Twist the bone post and gently and insert it through your piercing and the back of the earrings, maybe wiggling the post slightly until it finds its way through. Make the post feel snug, but not to tight. Please don't try to force them. The posts should be snug, but not jammed in. Be gentle with yourself and your carved bone earrings.

WATER BUFFALO BONE,
LATIN NAME: bubalus bubalis.
ORIGIN: South-East Asia
HARVESTING PRACTICE: The bone and horn we use is left from food production and farming practice. 
OTHER DETAILS: Recycled. The water buffalo of South East Asia is a domesticated animal. It is used to plow fields and carry loads. They are well treated and important to the survival of the native people. When they are too old to work, they are eaten and all part of the animal are utilized. They are never taken only in pursuit of the bones and horns!

Care of your carved bone earrings and jewelry

Try not to drop them. The bone does not need to be conditioned, but may be oiled to protect your bone earrings on occasion. Too much oiling will cause the color to deepen into a semi translucent yellowish ivory like tone, not "bone white". This may also happen over time due to the natural oils of your skin absorbing into the material as it becomes a part of your daily life. If they become too dark for your taste, You can whiten them a little bit by soaking in peroxide mixed with baking soda, then thoroughly rinse and dry them.
