I am known as the earring queen and everyone wants them. I ordered a 2nd pair since they are a little delicate and that means I'll be wearing them for quite awhile

Large royal earrings
I wasn't expecting these earrings to be as beautiful as they are. Â The silver is shiny & looks expensive. Â If you are looking for earrings that are not for the shy--because they will get noticed--and look beautiful and expensive, and have size to them, I think these may be just the thing. Â They are some of the largest I own but not over-the-top huge. Â Perfect. Â I recommend.
