this set of pearl earrings are definitely worth the price i paid. they are so pretty- the colors , luster and size is perfect. there are no blemishes on them, the blue ones match each other exactly (as opposed to other earrings i have purchased from overstock) . the white ones look elegant enough to wear for any event. they are button shaped with the back mostly flat but they look rounded when you put them on, also the back posts are sturdy and have a nice silver shine. good buy for a great pair of earrings!
