Orca Whale Earrings

Our Orca Whale earrings portray wild orcas swimming freely in the ocean under a setting sun, wild and free as they should be.

The Orca’s (Orcinus orca), also referred to as the killer whale, intelligence and striking appearance have made it a popular exhibit at sea life centres and aquariums, along with dolphins. Orca populations in the US and Canadian Pacific Northwest, Iceland and Japan have been negatively impacted since the 1960s to the 1980s by the live capture industry where they are exploited for ‘entertainment.’ In the wild, orcas can swim up to 100 miles per day – a phenomenal amount, in comparison to the exercise they receive in captivity and they are highly social; some populations are composed of matrilineal family groups (pods) which are the most stable of any animal species. Captive in concrete tanks, they are not provided with adequate social interactions, little to no stimulation where they suffer from dorsal fin collapse and lack proper exercise.

GEMSTONES: Citrine and blue sapphire

Each gemstone is sourced from mines where working conditions for the miners are as safe and environmentally friendly as possible, with no child labour. We work closely with our suppliers to maintain an ethical and sustainable brand and our suppliers work closely with the gemstone miners.
