I wanted a small post Aquamarine earring that would sparkle but not be too overwhelming when worn for "normal" Â every-day use and that's exactly what I got. Â These are great if you do not have a large ear lobe but want something nice in an Aquamarine. Â They are light in color, which is the correct coloring for a true stone; the back is secure so it will not come off. Â I recommend this to anyone who wants a nice sparkly stone.

Bought these for my Mom's birthday. She was delighted with the beautiful gift warp presentation. When she opened the box, she was again delighted with sparkle of the stones and the lovely 14K setting. Beautiful gems! Good size for a tasteful look.
