I love the fact that by buying these earrings I am helping women of Kenya earn a wage. The earrings are beautiful, very detailed, looks just like the picture. I was a little dissapointed that they did not shine up when using a polishing cloth. They are much longer than I expected, be sure to read the details on the length. They are for a gift for a friend.
