The bird depicted on our Puffin Earrings is nicknamed the Sea Parrot or Bottlenose. The large triangular beak is brightly colored during breeding season, and can accommodate numerous fish crosswise, for feeding the single chick. They nest in large colonies on rocky cliffs or burrows. Our stylized loop Puffin Earrings are hand crafted from sterling silver, measuring 1 1/8 x 3/8 inches. Puffin earrings are an unusual addition to your jewelry box, and celebrate a swimmer that spends much of its life at sea. Let these earrings silently speak of your affinity for all things wild and free.
