Cocobolo wood is the most variable wood we work with. It ranges from yellow to orangey-red shades, with some dark stripes thrown in the mix. I've never seen another wood like it! Although each pair is totally different and unique from every other pair, they're all equally beautiful! Note: The larger size is represented in the pictures, and it's your best chance of getting lots of dark stripes in your pair of earrings. Each pair is handmade from cocobolo wood and sanded multiple times to a very soft, smooth finish. The final touch is a few coats of shellac that really brings out the colors in this unique wood.
Size: Available in 2 diameters: 7mm (1/4in), or 10mm (3/8in). See the last picture for size comparisons.
Width is a bit variable depending on how much they get sanded down. But they usually turn out between 1-2.5mm

Care for your earrings: As with all handmade items, handle with care. These are real wood! Remember how your Mom would yell at you for leaving a cold drink on the wood coffee table without a coaster? Water leaves marks on wood…. Remove before showering and/or swimming. But with that being said, my husband never takes his cocobolo wood earrings off. They’ve faded a bit, but still look nice.
Due to the handmade nature of these earrings, they may vary slightly from the ones pictured. Also, keep in mind monitor settings can be different from screen to screen, so the color might vary slightly from what is pictured.
