The matriarch earrings worn together create the Aboriginal symbol for a woman.

One earring is in a 'U' shape representing a person whilst the other earring in the line represents a digging stick.

Wear these special earrings when you want to acknowledge and connect to the matriarchs in your life or just because they look stunning with your outfit.

We love matchy matchy earrings but, we adore these odd earrings together as set, match perfectly and tell a story.
