Story Behind the Art:
What began as a desire to help victims of sexual abuse and exploitation turned into a holistic program that helps women in Asia start a new life and pursue their dreams. Xiao Ying was abandoned when she was a young girl. She was left traveling from house to house, until finally her mother found her and sold her to a man. Terrified, she ran away and eventually ended up living with an uncle. Not long after, he was diagnosed with cancer. He could not afford the medical bills so he sent his daughter and Xiao Ying into a life of prostitution. She was hopeless and alone until she was rescued by volunteers from the SF Project. Today Xiao Ying is starting a new life in the SF shelter. Through their sponsorship program she is attending vocational school and hopes to one day have a family of her own.

These earrings are part of the Starfish Project which is an organization rescuing exploited women in Asia. The money raised from the sales of these earrings goes to a good cause. The earrings themselves are absolutely stunning and delicate. They are beautiful and a great bargain.Read More
When I needed some silver earrings to wear everyday, I was thrilled to find these! I was a little unsure if they would be too big or too small, since there wasn't anything to show their size. They are approximately an inch long--perfect for dressing up or down. Will get lots of wear out of these!Read More
I wear a lot of silver jewelery and was very excited with the opportunity to wear a filigree item. However, upon receiving the package I was surprised by the poor quality of the ear-rings. Having worn silver all my life and being an Indian, I know my silver. This wasn't one and I am surprised that a cheap metal (that feels like Tin) is being marketed by Overstock as silver. I will think twice before picking a cheap Chinese silver product next time since Overstock's description does not match the actual product quality. I will never recommend this to a friend. This is the second productive that has come off defective from my Thanksgiving/ Cyber Monday purchase on Overstock and I am disappointed to learn that you all will be charging me over $7 when you should be taking it back for free. My only advice to other buyers, please be careful before you buy silver products from this website.Read More
The "silver" earrings turned out to be "silver" plated and it was obvious after the first few wearings. I was very disappointed that you do not make it clear that they are not solid silver.Read More

Questions & Answers
Hello gulfbreezer, I hope your morning is starting well. The earring hooks are stamped silver the earrings are not. I cannot speak to the rhodium content. If you are looking for Sterling Silver we would not recommend them. Thank you for shopping with us.
Earring description lists hook clasps. How does the hook close? Do you have a picture of the clasp closed?
They don't snap together. They are just the wire kind that go through your ear and the kind that you can put the clear stoppers on in the back. I can't remember if they come with the stoppers or not.
I love the earrings, but the hook themselves are so flimsy and soft that they both bent loose and fell off. I have never had a single earring do that, and both of these did- while in my jewelery kit. I went to the hobby store and bought new hooks and now they are fine. I just feel lucky that the hooks did not come loose while I was wearing them or I would have lost them.
Just a fish hook. No clasp. You can add a stopper if you like. I have had no problems with mine.
They do not come with the stoppers. I have worn without the stoppers and have had no problems. However, if you have stoppers use them, especially in the winter when we wear so much extra clothing that they might get caught and/or lost.
its a fishhook back I have them they are quite comfortable and lightweight but very sturdy lovely design
The manufacturer probably changed the hook style due to complaints about the clasp breaking. I bought my niece a pair for Christmas (2013) and they were just fish hook wires. She loved them.
The earring description also indicates it is real silver. They are not. This type of misleading description is common with O.Co and is not the first time I was mislead by them on "silver" jewelry.
Are these earrings made of sterling silver? If not, what is the metal material the earrings are made of?
Yes, it is made of sterling silver.

Traditional Wedding Anniversary Gifts
A wedding anniversary, whether the fifth or the fiftieth, is a milestone worth celebrating. Everybody knows there's a list out there somewhere that tells you the perfect gift to give for any wedding anniversary. But who can remember what's on that list? Here, at your fingertips, are the gift-giving clues you need, along with links to find these items. In Victorian England, it was quite fashionable to have large celebrations for anniversaries, and it's likely that this list of traditional anniversary gifts came from that time, although no one knows the exact origin for certain. The traditional gifts became popular in the United States soon after, with a few alterations. Even if you don't consider yourselves a very traditional couple, you can use the list for inspiration and put a personal spin on the gift. A few contemporary interpretations of the ideas are offered below. For even more gift ideas, be sure to read our guides to modern wedding anniversary gifts and anniversary gemstones.
Modern Wedding Anniversary Gifts
A wedding anniversary, whether the first or the twenty-fifth, is a milestone worth celebrating. Giving a thoughtful gift to your partner is a wonderful way to show affection and commemorate the time you've spent together. Finding the perfect gift isn't always easy, especially if you've been giving each other gifts for decades. Where do you look for new ideas? This list is the best place to start. Each gift idea has a link to the department where you can shop for the items. In England, during the Victorian era, celebrating anniversaries with gifts and parties became very fashionable, and it didn't take long for the trend to reach the United States. The traditional list of anniversary gift ideas came from this time. Then, in 1937, a group of jewelers decided to update the list to include more modern items (and more items that they sold in their stores -- diamonds show up on the list three times). That's where this list of modern wedding anniversary gifts came from. Many items from the original list appear here, and we've offered even more contemporary interpretations of the ideas. If you want to give a creative gift, you can use this list as inspiration. For even more anniversary gift ideas, be sure to read our guides to traditional wedding anniversary gifts and anniversary gemstones.
