these are just like they are pictured and very nice. I already have many compliments on them as they are all I wear for right now.....I love them! Just the right size for me as I don't like extra large earrings. These are nice to wear for casual or dress-up. I wish Pablo would create an owl necklace to match it, as I like matching jewelry. I received it in a nice bag with the card and the story behind them as usual. I also received a surprise with my order which is a special keepsake. Thank you so much for that, I will treasure it always; especially when I sleep.
