"My favorites!!!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is the fourth pair of these I have either bought for myself, for a gift, or influenced a friend to buy. Everyone loves them. I am constantly complemented on them. One broke a hinge once, but I am getting it fixed. Can’t do without them!!

These earrings have an unique design. There was a 5/8? drop from ear to formal earring.

"Beautiful item!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

My wife loves Francisco Sanchezs jewelry! The earrings are thick silver, not easily bended, and done in traditional Mexican indigenous motifs that are beautifully graphic and almost modern in their look. The loops are large enough for people whose earlobes might often prevent wearing many types of earrings. I have bought her three different styles over the years and she loves them all!
