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. Sterling silver and copper.

        Comments about Robin's Nest Earrings:

        The ear rings I received are not at all like the sample shown. If it was not a hassle I would return them. For sure I will not trust NG again.
        I doubt this review will ever see the light of day.

        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!

              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.
