10kt Gold Turtle Rattle Earrings


Kanyáhten Ohstá:wen in the Mohawk language, the Turtle Rattle is a quintessential Haudenosaunee instrument. As a tool of Ratóris, its very origin is older than Creation and comes out when Ronatóris come to dance, visit, do medicine for the people and clean our houses. The Haudenosaunee Turtle Rattle is used in most ceremonies across our longhouse ceremonial calendar; putting through songs that share our memories of the Skyworld.


This earring set is approx. 4.5gm (total weight) and one inch in length, not including length of earring hooks. Our solid 10kt gold earring hooks, along with all our products, are proudly handcrafted in our studio in the village of Ohswé:ken!


Please note that our gold products are made-to-order. If your purchase is time-sensitive, please allot time for us to create your unique piece.
