"Love it"

This is the perfect size for me. I was thinking it might be too large and bulky but it is a perfect size ~ not too large and not too small. The color is beautiful. Love the design too.

"Cant keep her hands off of this one!"

It looks exactly like the photos, and it makes quite an impression in hand--more than one might expect. It is that perfect color for several of her applications, so it gets used a lot.

"Color, Form and Style"

I love the silver against the cool green jade. These earrings go with all my summer outfits. They look substantial yet lie easy on my ears - no uncomfortable heaviness. Contemporary vibe!
