Whale Tail Single Earring
The whale tail is an ancient Maori symbol that offers protection to the wearer. Traditionally, this symbol brought luck to the fishermen who wore it at sea. It stands for wisdom and longevity. Our whale tail winks with a hint of a mandala design, our twist on layering detail and symbolism for protection through the journey through life.
In the making:
Our earrings come in three options, depending on the design – short drop, long drop and hoop. The short drop is 15mm long from top to bottom and the Long Drop is 74mm. They’re perfect miniatures of some of our classic designs, drawn by hand and cut with a big old laser. They’re made of solid either 925 Sterling Silver of 375 9 carat Yellow Gold, finished and polished by hand. Not all pendants are available as charms, as the detail is too fine to cut (even with a snazzy laser).
We sell our earrings as singles, so that you can mix and match your designs and length of drop to suit your style. Add two to your cart if you want to stick to the same design, or check out our collections if you want to twist and mix it up.
