These are really pretty earrings, if only they had gold-tone ear hooks. The silver doesn't go with the gold-tone of the rest of the earring. I would have given them 5 stars! Nice craftsmanship though, very unusual.

They're nice earrings since they are two tone (meaning you could wear this with silver or gold jewelry) but I don't like that the earrings themselves came apart from the earring hook part in the front. I was able to reattach the earring this happened to but the clasp should be improved here since I'd have been mad to lose that part in a public place.

When these earrings arrived I was disappointed to learn that the beads and stones are strung together with gold-tone wire that is quite noticable, yet the earring hardware is silver. As a result the earrings do not look like good quality jewelry. Also be award that these earrings ship all the way from Thailand, and FedEx required a signature to leave them. This was an issue for me since I'm rarely home during delivery hours.

I received these earrings very quickly - and they came resting on a crimson pillow in a beautiful traditional Thai saa paper box. Even if the earrings hadn't been pretty I would have wanted to keep that box! The earrings are really pretty, however. I was concerned that they would look shoddy because the quartz and pearl pieces are connected by silver thread, rather than metal, but when I put them on, they looked very elegant. So my only remaining criticism is that the earring hook is gold, but given the silver thread used with the stones, it would be better if the hook were silver-toned, rather than gold. But as you do not really notice the hook color - and the thread almost disappears - when the earrings are worn, I recommend these earrings if you are looking for unique and elegant earrings.

These are cute earrings, but be warned, they are NOT sterling silver. The very flimsy ear wires are actually 925 stamped sterling silver, but the beads themselves are a base metal. I checked the actual manufacturers website, and they are even listed there as "silver toned". These are produced by a wonderful Asian charity program that assists women out of impoverishment and exploitation. I am all for supporting this, but Overstock should be more careful when labeling their items. Very cute, not very pricey, but the description is borderline fraudulent. If the authenticity of silver is important in your choice of this item, skip it.

This is a redundant review, because I purchased another pair of earrings from Overstock, that was also produced by the "Starfish Project". If these reviews get posted, I will be surprised.

The silver hooks are so flimsy that they easily bent while I tried to insert them in my ears. The largest stone has one awkwardly angled facet running the length of the stone at perhaps a 15% angle from midline.... no glow... no grace. The silver-toned flowers are pre-made beads: I'm not certain they are even metal. These earrings are heavy, bulky and unflattering. What a shame. They look so appealing in the picture.

I bought these earrings about 2 months ago and have barely taken them off since they arrived. They're simple, yet beautiful and interesting. They're perfect for me because my style is generally laid-back and boho, so when I need to dress up or tone it down these are EXACTLY what I need. They match everything and are appropriate for most situations. The pearls give the earrings a classic look, but the silver lotus design gives them some personality and earthy elegance. I wear these to school, parties, interviews, you name it. They're classic and beautiful without being too conservative. These are a funky twist on traditional pearl earrings that everyone can appreciate. LOVE THEM!!! :)

I ordered seven pairs of these earrings for my bridesmaids to wear with their own pearl necklaces. They are beautiful and very elegant--perfect to dress up an outfit but also would be great to dress it down. The packaging is amazing--it is a beautiful handcrafted box with origami wrapping paper. it is absolutely breathtaking. Only complaint was that it took weeks to get from me, but i understand they are handmade and noticed they were shipped directly from Thailand so that all takes time. I also did not have any gold in my earrings--the posts and all metal were silver unlike a previous complaint in another that theirs were two-toned.
