I like large earrings and these are large. The shade of turquoise is rather bright so they almost look plastic, but they are supposed to be real turquoise. A different pair may have been a deeper shade of turquoise. There is no way to pick from different shades of turquoise unless you order more than one pair and keep the ones you like the best. I will keep these because they are large. Would have preferred a deeper shade of turquoise.
