I have ordered these earrings in both the yellow gold and the white gold, that's how much I liked them. Â They are a great alternative to the standard diamond studs. Â The settings in the yellow gold seem a little more light-weight than the white gold settings but they are still very serviceable. Â The stones are actually blue! Â I fully expected they would be black with a hint of blue especially with the description ("Gleaming with the hue of a midnight sky") but no, they are a true navy blue. Â I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend these to any September baby or sapphire-lover.

5.0 out of 5.0
These earrings are a nice denim blue color, are big enough to show up, and are well made. They also have nice heavy findings on the back.
