This pair of Buffalo earrings were hand cut from a United States Nickel that we first started using in 2005. The design was taken from the back of a Jefferson nickel that was a very limited run from the United States mint. The design features an American Buffalo. After all the hand cutting work is done we plate the coin in our 14 karat gold and rhodium finish. The earrings are mounted on a pair of 14 karat gold filled ear wires.
