Rich, deep colored pink jade edged in gold make these earrings a stunning addition to a classic wardrobe!
These gorgeous, carved Italian pink jade earrings are just the most amazing compliment against sun-brushed summer skin, and my black evening dress! The deep fuchsia color of the jade, edged in gold, is stunning when worn with white linens, as well! Eye-catching, these large teardrop earrings have become my favorites to wear for both fun daytime events, and more formal evenings. They'll be travelling to Costa Rica with me in a few months for my daughter's wedding. They are an amazing high-quality gemstone piece for a reasonable price...Love them.
