    • Perfect for lovers of the unusual and stylish

      Option: Silver with Black Beads

      I LOVE these earrings! The metal is substantial without being heavy, so that they hang straight and don't twist about. The style and bold but not overpowering. They complement the type of clothes I usually wear, adding an arty, ethnic flair. I also like it that they are fair trade merchandise. Definitely among my favorite earrings ever.

    • Ribbon Candy earrings from Kenya
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Silver with Black Beads | Silver with Blue Beads

      I bought a pair of these for a friend and a pair for myself (after another writer said she did the same thing). I am really glad I did. I will pass that recommendation along - if they buy these as a gift - get yourself a pair too. I bought one set in black and one in blue and they are so so pretty. They are about 2 inches long but are not heavy, yet they aren't so light that you feel like you bought some cheap piece of tin. Really nice quality. I am very happy about this purchase.

      I had ordered a different set of electroplated earrings from Kenya before and they held up VERY well - still look like new and I still love them. These Ribbon Candy earrings are just as nice if not more so - I know I will enjoy them for a long time to come.

      Verified Purchase
      Option: Silver with Blue Beads

      These earrings were given as a gift. My daughter loved them and the fact they were fairly traded from Kenya also impressed her!

    • A Bit Small for Size but I love them
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Silver with Black Beads

      The earrings are gorgeous and I love them; however, my con is with the size of the earrings. They are a lot smaller than expected for the price. But I still like the earrings. My reason for not returning them is because of the Artisan and their great talent as well as the money to help them. It for a great cause which is more important for me.

    • Beautifully Different!

      Option: Silver with Black Beads

      I wanted earrings with this swirl design and these are perfect! I wore them the very day I received them and my husband loves them. My hair is very short and I can't pull off wearing something too long...but these work beautifully. I'd feel great in giving them as a gift too...great price and good quality.

      The style is nice, but they are HUGE! I have shorter hair, so they are a little too big for me. Might give them to a friend.

      Beautiful earrings. I purchased them in black and a pair in blue. I also purchased a pair as a gift for a family member. They are unique and well made. I have received many compliments on them. They hang from my earlobe at just the right length.
