Skip this item. The stone is of poor quality with only the faintest of veining. The workmanship is not as nice as the photo leads one to believe. Likewise, the earrings themselves are an odd size and their shape is not as thick as the photo seems to indicate. The earrings are uncomfortable to wear and do not hang well from the ear. After an hour or two the strain on one's earlobes is unbearable. Unless you seek something to rattle about in your clutch, SKIP THIS ITEM.
