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 Mexican Earrings
These are really nicely done, and very pretty on. (Be sure to look at all the photos, as the first one makes the earrings look much darker and oxidized than they actually are.) I received them in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend this artist.
I bought these to match the Sunlit Flower pendant I purchased last year. These earrings simply do not disappoint. So appreciate the mega talented artists who produce such beautiful earrings and other jewelry. Novica and its artists continue to be top rate. Thank you, all of you!

In the 1600s, Mexico's jewelry melded the rich pre-Hispanic tradition with European styles, principally Spanish. By the 1920s, jewelry designers created a modern Mexican identity featuring sterling silver necklaces and earrings with Aztec motifs and stones like jadeite and obsidian. Novica's Mexican Earrings Gallery unites these vintage styles with a dazzling variety of newer designs.
The ancient Maya were skilled astronomers and their legacy can be seen in gold-plated earrings depicting the sun and moon.
