Silver earrings cicada


Insects are incredibly fascinating and that also applies to cicadas. Some species can easily live underground for a decade or more and then come up all together en masse, making for a huge spectacle! And like many other animals, cicadas make noise to find a mate. Thanks to their hollow abdomen, which acts as a sound box, they can be extremely loud: some species reach up to 120 decibels, comparable to the siren of the fire brigade or a solid rock concert.

An ideal gift for entomologists and anyone with a passion and fascination for nature.

Ethically and lovingly made in Bali

Nina Designs is a jewelry brand with a heart of gold that makes fair trade jewelry in Thailand and Bali and tries to work as ethically and ecologically as possible. Their wages are well above the national minimum wages, employees receive a thirteenth month, 3 months of paid maternity leave, education about pre- and post-natal care, pension savings, etc. In their studio in Bali, 50% of the managers are women, which is even more impressive there than here.

Nina Designs uses recycled silver as much as possible. For each parcel sent, a tree is planted, which is part of a so-called "forest garden". The jeweler gives micro loans to starting craftswomen and supports various NGOs that fight for human rights, literacy or the environment. And of course their silversmiths also make beautiful jewellery!
