These earring are an exceptional value as evidenced by the quality, style and value. I have a lot of jewelry especially earrings from fashion to 18kt gold. It is quite obvious that a lot of detail and individual attention went into the craftsmanship of this product and that it is not just another mass produced piece of jewelry. The earrings are beautiful and from just looking at them and inspecting them they will last forever. They are very pretty, unique and look and feel much more expensive than they are. The picture does not give these earrings justice.
