"Beautiful earrings with a delicate design"
I bought these earring because my son loves when I wear animal themed jewelry. Of course, a working woman can only own so many pairs of giraffe earrings! These were a lovely compromise: he gets his birds, I get something delicate and lovely that doesnt feel themed. The color is a darker orange, with goes nicely with my red hair and makes the design stand out better than it might. The body of the earrings is extremely solid, despite that delicate appearance. My only criticism is that I wish that the wire themselves were a touch more substantial. Still, they arent flimsy. A good purchase that I am pleased with.
