Nice greenish tint to the ones I got....very pretty. A bit small, but 8-9mm is a correct measurement. Unless you have large very firm earlobes, this size is about the biggest you can get without them hanging wrong on your ears. I think these are just perfect.
I loved the look of the earrings, but poor workmanship caused one of the earrings to fall off the first night I wore them, resulting in the loss of that earring - useless. When I noticed that the earring was missing I checked the other one and it was on the verge of falling off also. The back clasp seems to be faulty, not snug enough to hold the earring. I would appreciate a replacement.
Have always wanted Tahitian Pearl studs so was happy to find these in a more, for me, wearable size. The color is more blue than pictured but I prefer this. The luster is exceptional and the quality of the pearls is very clean without pitting or flaws. Beautiful stud earrings, I will be happy and proud to wear them anywhere.
I just received these earrings today, and I must say, I am disappointed. The color of pearl I received is a light green (I expected at least dark green/blue or close to black). The quality of the backing is also very poor - it barely holds the earring on my ear. I can easily say that if I keep these earrings and don't replace the backing right away, I will definitely lose an earring. In addition, I am not too confident on the connection of the post to the pearl - it does not look very strong. I am wishing that I spent the extra $$$ and bought a pair from Blue Nile.

These are great natural Tahitians for the price. They aren't perfectly matched though - the luster on one was better than that on the other, but the color was pretty consistent. The price is right, though, the cheapest you can find Tahitians would be at least $$ more than these. This is a very solid pair of earrings and I'd recommend them.

These Tahitian earrings are absolutely beautiful. The pair I received has a slightly more greenish tint than the ones in the picture, but I love that fact. There are no visible pits, pot marks or scratches. The pearls are very shiny, and I will be giving these to my wife for Christmas. I know she is absolutely going to love them! Great quality at a great buy!

I would recommend these earrings with the caveat that they are blue black rather then a clear black. I don't know if that would apply to all the earrings evenly, but I think that there should be some information provided as to the clarity of the blackness.
These earrings are pretty and can be worn with any outfit. But their luster isn't as great as other Tahitian black pearls I have purchased from Overstock. In fact, there is no green luminosity to my earrings (unlike the photo used at Overstock's website). The basic colr is a black-gray with a bit of a sheen. The good news is this: shape of the pearls is very round and there are no pits in the surface of these earrings.
