These whimsical earrings celebrate that classic harbinger of spring, the robin, as well as the common belief that having a bird's nest in your home brings good luck. In German tradition, finding a bird's nest in one's Christmas tree meant luck and harmony for the coming year.


Artisans in Kathmandu, Nepal, use thin copper wire to weave these tiny nests, in which stylized sterling silver robins perch contentedly. Dangling from a French hook, they move as you walk, like a branch swaying in the breeze.


Handcrafted in Nepal. 1 1/2"L including the French hook.

    Comments about Robin's Nest Earrings:

    These earrings are such a delight. Every time I wear these I am asked about them and if I will take one out. I feel like Elaine Benes from Seinfeld writing a J. Peterman Company Catalog description. This is usually what I say:
    "These are beautiful, yes? These nests are hand woven copper wire by artisans in Nepal. The Robin's are *hand stamped and carved*, then delicately placed in the nests. It is so precious how they move when I walk!"
    Of course, I direct them to your website with the notion that because they are hand made there is a limited supply. :)
    My mother, aunt and I am sure some strangers have purchased these earrings.

    ***It would be good to mention that these earrings are a 14 gauge hook. This is larger than a standard jeweler's gauge which is usually a 20 or 22 gauge.
    I am EXTREMELY HAPPY with the 14 gauge as this is my size. I am able to wear these without backers! I always have trouble with my jewelry because of the small 'standard' gauge.

    The hook is wonderful and solid. It does not bend or deform with use.

    Thank you Nat Geo! What a wonderful little nest of joy!

          Comments about Robin's Nest Earrings:

          I was so disappointed with these ear rings. The nest was way too big & the bird was so skinny & set down in the nest so far that it could barely be seen. I will have to find a different gift as I would never give these anyone.

            Fun just wearing them for any activity. The etching on the nests is lovely.

                I love whimsical and these fit the bill. I love them, and as with all National Geographic products they are very well made.
