These earrings are exquisite! I have been waiting several years for some really classy peridot earrings. I love the shape - that they are pear-shaped and not round - and the diamonds on the earwires make them unique. I love that they are earwires since I cannot wear leverbacks. The only problem is that the earwires are thicker than the others that I have and therefore are a little more difficult to slip through the ears and to wear. Since I only wear yellow gold these are also super for me. Thank you for keeping us "gold girls" in mind. These fill the ticket very well.
