I purchased these earrings as a little something extra to go with my daughter s birthday gift. She was so excited when she opened them. She said they were too beautiful and the stone would go perfectly with her eyes. She wore them when her boyfriend took her to dinner to celebrate her special day.

This pendant is very cute and elegant. The recipient loves birds so she loved it. Its not too small but not too large either, just a perfect size to wear in many occasions.
