The twelfth member of the Japanese zodiac, the wild boar symbolizes fertility, courage, adventure and prosperity. (The Chinese zodiac has the pig as the twelfth animal, but Japan switched it to boar when they adopted the zodiac because there weren't pigs in Japan.) Boars are the gentle hirsute giants of the forests and mountains where they roam. These wood earrings are the perfect way to show your appreciation of these pretty porcine creatures.
These boar earrings are made from lightweight maple and are engraved with the boar image on both sides of each earring.
Each boar measures about 1.5 inches at the widest point.
The ear wire is sterling silver-filled.
These adorbs wood boar earrings come packaged in a little yellow box, perfect for gifting to your favorite animal lover.
*The last photo shows the model wearing the black version of the Boar Earrings for scale; you will receive the wood version.
