Flamingos are born with gray plumage and turn pink within the first few years of life. Their pink hue is an organic pigment called carotenoid which comes from the food they consume. Once flamingos feast upon brine, which feed upon microscopic algae that naturally produces carotenoids, their feathers will turn a rosy pink. If a flamingo didn’t feed upon brine, their coloring would eventually fade.
Flamingos symbolize the freedom of expression. Express yourself in these stud earrings of the boldest bird of them all.

Love everything I have ever got. These earrings are so cute and good quality.
I love flamingos, I love pink, I love gold, I love love love these very cute studs! I originally bought them with the intent to just wear them “when appropriate” but I actually ended up getting second piercings so I can wear them all the time (removing them to sleep and shower of course). Pink flamingos is kind of my brand.
