I purchased these to complement a multi-strand, multi-stone necklace I already own. The turquoise is a nice green-blue, the amber was quite a bit darker than I expected. It is not golden, it is dark brown. The earrings are well-made, and still complement the necklace, so I will be keeping and enjoying them . I seriously don't think anyone would recognize the stone as amber, though.
The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is that the "amber" stone really seems too dark for amber. However, I knew this when I bought it because the photo clearly shows a darker color. I've gotten a ton of compliments on them and they're plenty sturdy to hold these stones.

I fell in love with these earrings as soon as I saw them on the web-site. I read the reveiws and decided to try them anyway. Am I glad I did! They are beautiful and it is so refreshing to get an item that looks exactly like it did in the picture. I have NO problem with the stones at all, I am very happy and satisfied with my purchase. I'm thinking seriously about going back and purchasing the matching necklace!
