"Beautiful but very heavy"

Colors are beautiful! Stones are well cut. These earrings are larger than I expected, and are VERY heavy, earlobes are stretched and swing by their weight. I would like them better if they were smaller and not so heavy.

These earrings can be seen when you wear them. The pink cats eye beads are beautiful . The picture doesnt really do them justice. These earrings are different than any others I have. If you want some pretty earrings that are unique then these are for you!

"Beautiful....and Memorable!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This was a gift for my wife, who some years earlier had spent a year in Ghana. She always spoke fondly of her experiences there, meeting people and getting to know the culture. My hope was that this gift would help revive those memories at Christmastime. Success! She loves it, and so do I! Thank you, Rachel!
