I've been looking at South Sea golden pearl earrings for almost a year now. I was originally going to get a pair of South Sea golden pearl stud earrings at another location but then I saw these. I liked these for two reasons: 1. Nice size. 2. I like how they are drop style. Because I had never seen a golden pearl in person before (I realize the "gold" color can vary) I was not sure how the studs would look against my skin tone. But because the pair from RS are dangle....the color would not be an issue no matter the golden color. These earrings are very classy. :o) Simple, yet elegant. They have a nice weight to them. Perfect on the size; not too big, not too small. The grading is probably about a AA or AA+. I really wish RS would grade ALL of their pearls. These are not dyed, which in my book, makes them just that much more classy. I also wish RS would put in the Product Details if the pearls were dyed or natural in their color(s). One can't go wrong with these. Dress them up, dress them down. You will have fun with these beauties.Â
