As most valuables in the game, you can opt to sell them, or you can use them in crafting. The Gold Earring, for example, can be used to craft the Boar Tusk Talisman at the Fence.
In Red Dead Redemption II, this unique material can usually be found by looting the bodies of your victims, or through robberies.
However, unlike other materials in RDR2, the Gold Earrings are also found in specific locations. This is quite helpful because some players might sell the Gold Earrings, before crafting the Boar Tusk Talisman.
So, let’s see where you can find Gold Earrings in Red Dead Redemption 2. Below we reveal three methods to get more Gold Earrings just in case you need them.
Where to Find the Gold Earrings:
One of the first locations you should visit if you are looking for an RDR2 Gold Earring is Watson’s Cabin. This location can be approached during a Home Robbery. Make sure you check our Watson’s Cabin home robbery guide if you want to get the most out of this specific activity.
Now, assuming you already dealt with the occupants at this location, check the nightstand pictured below. Inside the drawer, you should be able to find a Gold Earring or even more. Keep in mind though that drop rate varies in each location.
If you can’t find the Gold Earring at Watson’s Cabin, head to Mattock Pond, just north of Rhodes. From here, north-east you should see a cattle farm.
Head to that location and, if needed, kill the occupants inside. Your goal is to reach the drawer in the bedroom (also pictured below). Inside one of the drawers, you should find another Gold Earring.
The final method to find Gold Earrings in Red Dead Redemption 2, involves Train Robberies. Since these values are worn by women, focus on them when you rob trains. It’s not the easiest method because it might lower your reputation, but the talisman you need to craft is more important.
Last, but not least, keep in mind that you can also try visiting one of the locations above; and if you don’t find the Gold Earring, you can save your game and reload it. This is actually a good way to make the items respawn.
How to Use the Gold Earring:
The Gold Earring in Red Dead Redemption II is used to craft the Boar Tusk Talisman, for which you also need the Cobalt Petrified Wood.
If you don’t know where to find it, check our Cobalt Petrified Wood location guide, then head to a Fence and use these items to craft the said RDR2 Talisman.
The Gold Earring can be sold at the Fence, but it’s a cheap item; meaning that you’ll only get $2 for one piece.
