Beautiful pair of earrings, however, until I got them I didn't realize that the front part of the sapphire was not polished. Also, when I booked they were in stock, but by the time the order was processed - the earrings were out of stock, so it took a while to get them delivered. I'd still get them though - a really beautiful set!

Very poor quality stone. Could be any piece of blue rock. No clarity whatsoever.
