I love the real gemstones used and their bright colors! This pair of earrings is strung together with silk thread. It has held together so far, but should be treated with care. The hook is a little small for my earlobes. It goes in, but does not extend very far below the earlobe; I have to use some rubber stoppers which I purchased so I will not lose them. I like them, but would appreciate a larger hook. The metal is fine with my sensitive ears.
I love these earrings! They are very comfortable to wear. The omega backs are just perfectly tight! The Larimar gemstones have enough blue and not chauky looking. The blue topaz gemstones are clean and clear. I am very happy with this purchase!
