      I've never seen earrings like it far exceeded my expectations. Unfortunately it took longer than I wanted to to receive them but I was warned when I ordered them that they would take longer to ship well worth the wait. I ordered these for Christmas present and I'll soon be ordering another pair for myself exceeded my expectations

      Looks great and adds sophistication to just about every outfit...dressy, casual or in-between. Colors in earrings "pop" with so many colors: white, black, teal, oink, purple, yellow, khaki, reds. A great buy that hasn't disappointed.

      I didn't pay attention to the size description, so they were a little longer that I prefer. The colors are just as the picture shows--really vivid. I love gemstone jewelry and these fit right into my taste and budget. I would definitely recommend them to a friend and I will purchase again in the future

      On my earrings the length of the teardrop is 1 inch with the widest part of the teardrop measuring 3/4 inch. These earrings have a variety of colors in them. Only upon close observation does one see that this is caused by the inlay of 6 different stones, the same color and position in each earrings. They are not for newly-pierced ears as there is a small weight to them. I purchased these earrings with the Alpaca Silver Inlaid Stone Turtle Pendant (Mexico). All three are a good match.

      Verified Purchase

      After waiting several weeks for the earrings to arrive, I was very disappointed when I opened the package. I was expecting vividly colored, handmade earrings, like the description. I honestly thought the earrings looked junky and mass-produced. I would not recommend this product.

      Verified Purchase

      I ordered these earrings for a Christmas gift, but I was a little taken aback by the lack of matching patterns. One earring looks exactly like the illustration, the other does not. When I tried to return them for this reason, I learned it would cost almost *! I have been a Club O member for several years. I paid no shipping to receive these ** earrings, and I refuse to pay almost a third of the price to return them! I would not recommend these earrings. With this kind of customer service (I have not paid shipping in the past to return larger items) I don't think I will continue to recommend Overstock.com!

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "God bless these talented women for their hard work. But the shells are made from REAL animals that were taken from the sea, tortured, ripped out of their shells while fully awake,, then their beautiful shells are used to make these earrings. Most humans just won't open their eyes wide enough ti see animals being harmed, such as in down bedding or these earrings. Sorry but this product is not cruelty free & not for me."

      • A:

        Not sure I can see the validity of your argument. Since the description says "resin" accented in silver, I just wonder where you get your information on sea life being ripped from the sea and tortured to death to sacrifice their shells. I know resin is a compsite of glue and inorganic material. Seems like a great deal of trouble to go to just to make a resin. Just tell me your source for your "question?" and I'll be more than glad to support it because I, too, am sickened by the slaughter of elephants, rhinos, and countless other animals simply for the avarice created in wanting their body part or parts. This is not human survival, it is about the systematic murder of creatures who evolved out of the same star dust from which we came. That said, my wife has had these earrings for nearly a year and loved them from the first sight. She has received numerous compliments, so these femaile artisans deserve praise.

      • A:

        I love these earrings and appreciate the good quality of workmanship

        Hello randol, you will be contacted by Customer Care. Have a great day.

      "These earrings say they have been shipped and delivered. I have not received anything. Please advise."

      • A:

        Hello frisco20011, you will be contacted by Customer Care. Have a great day.

    • Q:

      "Please check whether these earrings are in fact hypoallergenic. Nickel is included in the list of metals in Alpaca silver, and nickel causes the allergic reactions."

      • A:

        They sure are. I wear them many times and ALWAYS get lots of commpliments.

      • A:

        Hello twilightknitter, These earring are stunning! I have confirmed that the hooks are hypoallergenic, but the actual earrings aren't. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.

      • A:

        These earrings are really beautiful in person, but Overstock is wrong - the hooks are unfortunately not hypoallergenic. I'm allergic to nickel and bought them, and I'm definitely allergic to them.

      • A:

        Put CLEAR Finger NAIL Polish on the HOOP of the EarRing and ENJOY!!!

    • Q:

      "What is alpaca? What metals does it contain?"

      • A:

        Hi deesmess, We did some research online and found this : Alpaca silver is a common name for a metal alloy, a combination of metals, of copper, nickel and occasionally other metals such as zinc, tin, lead or cadmium. The alloy also can be called nickel silver, German silver, new silver and paktong. It is used in a variety of manufactured commercial products, as well as in technical industries. Alpaca silver was first used in China as a substitute for sterling silver. It made its way into Europe through traded goods, where it was marketed under the name of paktong or white copper. In the 18th century, several German companies adopted the use of a similar alloy, and in 1823 a competition was held to discover which alloy was the best silver imitation. Berndorf, a German manufacturer, sold their nickel silver products under the name Alpaca silver, and the term became commonly used throughout Europe. In 1840, a process called electroplating was developed, allowing a fine metal coating to be plated onto metal and non-metal object, which opened many new markets for nickel silver-plated goods. For many years, Alpaca silver was a component in several European coins, including the Portugese escudo and the German mark. With the shift in currency to the Euro, these coins are now effectively out of circulation. A form of the alloy is also used in the U.S. nickel, although the composition of 75% copper and 25% nickel is called copper-nickel in America. Thanks for shopping with us.

      • A:

        should not use "silver" in its name - misleading

    • Q:

      "I am not familiar with mm sizes, so what is the length of this pair of earrings, please?"

      • A:

        The earrings are 1.18 inches long.

    • Q:

      "While the description states a hypoallergenic hook, could you please advise what metal the hook is made from as I have ULTRA SENSITIVE ears. Thanks!"

      • A:

        The metal in these earrings are made of alpaca silver.
