Alaska Caribou Earrings AK-43


These colorful handmade earrings are handcrafted, silver plated and individually diamond cut to add extra sparkle in this Alaskan wildlife jewelry caribou design. The origin of the caribou according to Native legends, once upon a time there were no caribou on the earth. But there was a man who wished for caribou, and he cut a hole deep in the ground, and up this hole came caribou, many caribou. The caribou came pouring out, until the earth was almost covered with them. And when the man thought there were caribou enough for mankind, he closed up the hole again. Thus the caribou came up on earth.
