Looks like white gold to me. Not much sparkle here. I am surprised that I have to return these. I wanted them to be a beautiful Christmas gift for a lovely 17 yr old girl.., ... but they are not really nice enough for me to give. The size is nice but even with my magnifying glass I can barely tell there is any stones in them. It doesn't help that they come stuck on a piece of cheap white foam in a cheap white box. It's extreamly rare that I don't give good reviews but wanted to try to spare someone the expense and trouble I have to go through now .., ... shopping in the local stores for the right earrings before Christmas.
