Elephant Hair Bracelets Four StrandRegular price $350.00
In past centuries, tribal elephant hunters made an expandable bracelet from the tail hairs of an elephant following a successful hunt. Thought to possess magical powers, these highly-prized adornments were said to bring health and prosperity.
Traditionally, elephant hair bracelets were worn on the right wrist by a hunter. Receiving one as a gift was an especially auspicious honor, typically indicated by the placement of the bracelet on the left wrist.
With elephant populations in decline across the world, we render our elephant hair bracelets in precious metals to honor their cultural significance and contribute to the fight against poaching. Sourced from artisans building a vibrant cottage industry in Botswana, 10% of your purchase will also go actual wildlife conservation efforts on the ground. So you can enjoy a piece of tradition while helping to ensure the survival of the magnificent creatures that inspired it.
Each expandable bracelet is personally hand-crafted by using quality sterling silver and 14 k gold-filled wire. The legendary good fortune promised by the wearing of these bracelets is second only to the pleasure of owning this fine piece of jewelry.
