I ordered this for a birthday gift. It arrived in a beautiful box covered with handmade paper, the earrings nestled on a pillow of cotton. Very classy looking. The recipient was quite impressed. The earrings themselves are beautiful--well made of quality materials. Also included was a sweet printed story about the artist and about Novica, which works through National Geographic to support craft artists worldwide. I will definitely consider buying more Novica objects that appear on Overstock.
