These dramatic earrings are incredibly soft to the touch. They look great with long hair, or make a stunning impact with short hair or an updo. Earwires are 14K gold-plated. Cone-shaped findings are brass. Length ranges from 9" to 10" depending on available feathers. Coque feathers are from unique roosters that grow these exceptionally long feathers and shed them once a year. These birds have been bred for over 100 years by fly fishermen, who use the feathers as fishing lures. Sustainably sourced in the USA.
