I am happy with my purchase. I saw amethyst drops attached to little ruby studs on RS a looooooong time ago and wished I had purchased them. These were perfect because not only can I attach ruby studs, I can attach diamonds & pink sapphires. They are nicely made and the amethysts are nice - nicer than the picture, really. I only gave them 4 stars because unlike some of the RS jewelry, they don't knock my socks off but they are pretty and nice quality.

Bottom Line: I would recommend this to a friend!
4.0 out of 5.0
nice size and quality for the price
These earring jackets are beautiful. They are a good size and the amethyst is a fairly dark color. Great buy for the price.
