"Just as pretty as the picture"

They are just as beautiful as they look. Sometimes throw a stethoscope around my neck at work and these dont get in the way because they are a little on the heavier side. The colors are gorgeous. I have short dark curly hair and have gotten complements on these every time I have worn them.

"Beautiful"

These are substantial and beautiful. The photos cannot show how the light hits the soapstone and turns them from green to yellow to gold to brown to blue...I always get complements on them with my short dark hair!
