The Village Council
Your answers straight from the village experts
Absolutely! Jewelry is an art form that allows makers to express their individuality and cultural influences, and certain designs are used to represent important symbols. For example, Central American artisans incorporate traditional figures, glyphs, and pre-Hispanic folklore. In Mexico, the famous work of artists Angel Ortiz, Maria Belen Nilson, and Rosa Rojo highlight the beauty of Aztec, Mayan and Teotihuacan civilizations. In Peru, powerful symbols, like the Andean chakana, are used to represent humanitys union with the cosmos. Indian artists are extremely tied to their faith and spirituality. Earring designs include chakra gemstones, motifs of Lord Ganesha, and other spiritual imagery. In Bali, the Om symbol is prevalent, as well as the mythological panther-like Barong image, which is seen as a protector spirit. Designs pulled from the natural world, like animal figures, feathers, plants, as well as stones, are used in almost every culture, which then infuses them with their own particular meanings.
Yes! We offer a wide selection of earrings that are made from eco-friendly materials. Cow bone, water buffalo horn, fabric, recycled paper, wood, palm leaf and coconut shells, just to name a few. Product descriptions always list materials used, so be sure to read about each product to discover how artisans are working to ensure sustainability and environmental consciousness.
There is no best when it comes to handmade earrings. However, certain materials lend themselves well to jewelry. Silver and gold, for example, are frequently used to make earrings because of their luster and shine. Each region puts its own unique touch on the art of earring-making. Most use some combination of silver, gold, gemstones, wooden or glass beads, and bones. Some regions, like West Africa, have found ways to introduce up-cycling into the jewelry-making process. Recycled plastic and paper beads, as well as coconut shells are commonly integrated into beautiful works of earring art. Whatever materials used, quality and safety are always our top priorities. Each pair of earrings is tested to ensure its safety. If you do have sensitive skin, you may consider rhodium plated earrings, as rhodium is completely hypoallergenic. You can always find all relevant information about materials in the product description.
Featured Reviews on Bali Earrings
A New Favorite
These earrings are my new favorites. Theyre much nicer than I was expecting. The craftsmanship and finishing details are even better than the photos illustrate. I am now ordering the matching necklace. They would make a terrific gift for any woman who loves summer, the beach and wearing sandals/flip-flops.
I bought these as a gift for my daughter. I loved them so much I bought a pair for myself. They are very well made, and the detailed vine work is so intricate and beautiful!
Simple and elegant!
I love the simple elegance of these earrings. I also love the sparkle of prasiolite, so they have some fun bling!

Balinese Sterling Silver Dangle Earrings, "Lamak Flags"$42.95
Balinese artisan Ari Gunawan was born in Celuk, Bali, a village well-known for its silver crafting. Today, he and his wife still live and work in Celuk, creating beautiful jewelry together. These sterling silver dangle earrings feature ornate flag-like dangles called 'Lamak' that are suspended from rope-motif circles. The unique design swings from sterling silver hooks.
18k Gold Plated Sterling Silver Chandelier Earrings, "Gold Peacock Feather"$59.95
Spreading outward in a flamboyant display like a peacock's feathered plume, these chandelier earrings from Bali artisan Desi Antari are every bit as dramatic. Delicate polished paillettes dangle from swirls and spirals, all rendered by hand in sterling silver bathed in 18k gold. An oxidized finish lends the earrings the look of a vintage treasure.
Gold and silver work were refined arts in Bali by the end of the Majapahit Empire in 1389. Some families have been crafting jewelry since that time, passing the tradition from generation to generation.
Javanese jewelers create dramatic designs based on their own ancient art traditions. Today, artisans from both Bali and Java utilize silver granules - tiny globes of silver - to achieve rich textures in their jewelry. Gold accents reflect the precious pieces once crafted for royalty, and colorful gemstones thrive in Novica's Gallery of Bali Earrings.
The blue topaz earring is a perennial favorite of designers like Agung Pribadi and Ketut Renda to pair with a blue topaz bracelet or choker. Garnet, pearl and amethyst are also favorite gems in Balinese earrings, while Buan carves bone into exquisite cameos. Filigree butterflies, hearts and dragonflies appear in a variety of styles. Yuniati's reverent cross necklace and earrings are wonderful gifts for a special event.
