Stones per Earring:
GARNET: the birthstone of January. One glance at the deep red seeds nestled inside of a pomegranate explains why the word "garnet" comes from the Latin word "granatus," meaning "grain" or "seed." This name was given to the garnet because of its close resemblance to the succulent seed.

I bought these on clearance and only gave 4 stars because for the price they should have come with the stoppers to fit on the earwires. The earwires seem a little flimsy, too, otherwise I would have rated 5 stars because they have a nice length and appearance can be dressy or casual with the rich red and denim colored stones.Â

Great colors and length
Great colors and length. I usually try to buy earrings that don't have the wire hooks but these are longer than most and I have the plastic buds to make me feel secire
