Long Necklace - Buffalo Horn and colored lacquer - Vietnam | SO Original


The harmony between Canadian excellence and ancestral Malagasy techniques

SO creates timeless jewelry from zebu from Madagascar, a natural and recycled material. Traditionally used as ritual objects, the zebu horn is a symbol of power and prosperity. All horn pieces are cut and polished with ash by local women, and each piece of jewelry is created and assembled by hand in Montreal.

Description: Buffalo horn is made up of dense layers of fibers that have a very hard and durable surface

Is buffalo horn jewelry an ethical product?

The answer is yes because the horn is ethically harvested to carve into a variety of jewelry. The horns are from many countries, from Asia to Africa. They are a by-product of the leftover item from the food industry.

After you learn more about repurposed horns, you will completely fall in love with horn jewelry. Besides the fact that it's beautifully unique in color and patterns, it's also eco-friendly. Horns, like our fingernails, are compostable. How cool is that?
