These Bermuda Hog Penny Earrings came from the Bermuda One Cent that was minted from 1970 – 2000. The government of Bermuda immortalized the Bermuda Hog on their Penny because it was native to the Island when the first settlers arrived on the Island. They even named a famous Pub after the Hog Penny. Great Pub if you ever get a chance to go to Bermuda!! After we Hand Cut the piece we plate the Earrings in 14 Karat Gold and Rhodium to accent just certain areas of the design. The Earrings are mounted on 14 Karat Gold Filled Ear Wires.
