  • vivid colors

    I didn't pay attention to the size description, so they were a little longer that I prefer. The colors are just as the picture shows--really vivid. I love gemstone jewelry and these fit right into my taste and budget. I would definitely recommend them to a friend and I will purchase again in the future

    • How is the quality of the product? exactly as shown
    • Did the product fit true to size? n/a
  • BEAUTIFUL EARRINGS

    On my earrings the length of the teardrop is 1 inch with the widest part of the teardrop measuring 3/4 inch. These earrings have a variety of colors in them. Only upon close observation does one see that this is caused by the inlay of 6 different stones, the same color and position in each earrings. They are not for newly-pierced ears as there is a small weight to them. I purchased these earrings with the Alpaca Silver Inlaid Stone Turtle Pendant (Mexico). All three are a good match.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Some of the colors matched.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. I feel this product is of high quality.
  • Very pretty

    I bought these as a gift for a friend but they are so pretty I think I'll keep them for myself! Very lightweight and the perfect length.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
    • How is the quality of the product? Excellent quality
    • Did the product fit true to size? Yes
  • Disappointed

    After waiting several weeks for the earrings to arrive, I was very disappointed when I opened the package. I was expecting vividly colored, handmade earrings, like the description. I honestly thought the earrings looked junky and mass-produced. I would not recommend this product.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? No, not nearly as vivid.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. They looked machine-made and mass-produced.
    • How accurate was the sizing? accurate
  • not as shown

    Earrings received are not as bright as shown, dissappointed, but will keep.

  • BEAUTIFUL COLORFUL EARRINGS

    Even though these earrings look very pretty in the picture, they are even nicer in person. The colors are very vibrant, and I love that. I wish they would have had a matching necklace. I am thinking about getting a second pair as a gift for a friend. I know they would be a big hit.

Please check whether these earrings are in fact hypoallergenic. Nickel is included in the list of metals in Alpaca silver, and nickel causes the allergic reactions. twilightknitter on Sep 15, 2013

They sure are. I wear them many times and ALWAYS get lots of commpliments. shadowrose2 on Sep 20, 2013
 
Hello twilightknitter, These earring are stunning! I have confirmed that the hooks are hypoallergenic, but the actual earrings aren't. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 20, 2013
 
These earrings are really beautiful in person, but Overstock is wrong - the hooks are unfortunately not hypoallergenic. I'm allergic to nickel and bought them, and I'm definitely allergic to them. ab37 on Oct 16, 2014
 
 

What is alpaca? What metals does it contain? deesmess on Apr 8, 2013

Answer This Question

Hi deesmess, We did some research online and found this : Alpaca silver is a common name for a metal alloy, a combination of metals, of copper, nickel and occasionally other metals such as zinc, tin, lead or cadmium. The alloy also can be called nickel silver, German silver, new silver and paktong. It is used in a variety of manufactured commercial products, as well as in technical industries. Alpaca silver was first used in China as a substitute for sterling silver. It made its way into Europe through traded goods, where it was marketed under the name of paktong or white copper. In the 18th century, several German companies adopted the use of a similar alloy, and in 1823 a competition was held to discover which alloy was the best silver imitation. Berndorf, a German manufacturer, sold their nickel silver products under the name Alpaca silver, and the term became commonly used throughout Europe. In 1840, a process called electroplating was developed, allowing a fine metal coating to be plated onto metal and non-metal object, which opened many new markets for nickel silver-plated goods. For many years, Alpaca silver was a component in several European coins, including the Portugese escudo and the German mark. With the shift in currency to the Euro, these coins are now effectively out of circulation. A form of the alloy is also used in the U.S. nickel, although the composition of 75% copper and 25% nickel is called copper-nickel in America.
