Earrings exactly as described - turquoise was veined, and the clasp part seemed to be well-attached. I gave these as a gift, and my only complaint is the cheap,industrial looking packaging. They were wedged into holes in foam rubber stuff in a square box . They were not centered in the box - they were to the edge of the box. Very weird looking. My friend asked, when she opened them "where'd you get these?" b/c it the packaging like something you'd get at a flea market. I would have given 5 stars if the packaging matched the attractiveness of the earrings. She liked them though, and they do look good. Might get myself some too.
I have been eyeing these earrings for a while because I was afraid they might be too heavy for my earrings since I am 62 and stretched my lobes out when I was younger. They are just perfect. No sagging, only get about 3 compliments a day when I wear them and I just tell people to go to Overstock and buy a pair.
I purchased these earrings to go with a large stoned necklace I have from my mother. I wound up wearing them and my pendent necklace I matched to a dress for my daughter's wedding. Everything went together quite well. Only complaint is they the hoop that goes thru the ear is flat rather than round and is a little uncomfortable.
