Bought these to go with a necklace that has a similarly shaped stone. The stones in these earrings are a good color - a nice root-beer brown - and even though they are not karat gold, the goldfill looks good. I prefer gold to silver so was very happy to find these at a great price. The leverbacks are nice, too - much more reliable than shepherd's hook fastenings and no need for those fiddly plastic stoppers to keep the earrings in. A good buy!
