I ABSOLUTELY love these earrings. I read some of the reviews regarding variations in the color of the stones. The earrings I received match perfectly. Smoky quartz is one the hot new gemstones because brown is so popular. You can wear these earrings to work, casual dinner and/or with jeans. There are days when I have to pick out different earrings because I've worn them serveral days in a row! Also, I received them within 4 days of placing my order.
