Adorable and dazzling, these plump little owl drop earrings are adorned by .57 ct. t.w. of black and white CZs. Round simulated rubies of 1.25 and 1.50 mm embellish the bodies, with quite wonderful results. Leverback, 18kt rose gold over sterling silver earrings. CZ weights are diamond equivalents.
18KT: Karat (abbreviated kt or K) is a unit that indicates the purity of gold in the metal. 18kt is 75% gold. In Europe, 18K yellow gold is most favored and used in jewelry.
Gold Over Sterling
STERLING SILVER: Also known as "Standard Silver," sterling silver is silver alloyed with other metals to increase the hardness and durability. Generally, sterling is 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. Some sterling silver jewelry is plated with 14kt-18kt gold and referred to as "vermeil," or "gold over sterling."
POLISHED: A buffed-out finish used to produce a mirror-like shine.
HINGED: A bale with a hinge. The hinge allows the pendant to be placed on and taken off a chain easily and without sliding. Ideal for putting pendants on chains that have large clasps.
HINGED POST: An earring with a straight post insert and a hinged backing to hold it in place.

Stones per Earring:
CUBIC ZIRCONIA: once called the poor cousin to the diamond, CZ's have since become a fashion statement in their own right. Perfect for travel and a little extra bling, CZ Jewelry is one of man's flawless creations.
(Color: Colorless, Quantity: 28, Shape & Cutting Style: Round, Weight: 0.28 ct. t.w., Size: 1.25 mm)
RUBY: A bold fiery stone, the ruby is a symbol of wealth, vitality and love. When cut and polished, the ruby's high luster is as dazzling as a diamond's. Ruby jewelry makes the perfect gift for loved ones and is the birthstone for July.
SIMULATED RUBY: A simulated ruby is an artificial stone made to imitate real rubies. Sometimes known as "faux ruby," is does not actually hold any of the physical properties of ruby, as it could be made from acrylic, plastic, or CZ. Simulated ruby is very affordable and can create the same sultry look for less.
(Color: Red, Quantity: 64, Shape & Cutting Style: Round, Size: 1.25 mm)
These earrings are a real standout with their rounded body shape and dazzling CZ embellishments. I love the rose gold which enhances the rosy red stones of the owls' bodies. The earrings are lightweight and very comfortable to wear. I collect owls and this pair of earrings go to the top of my list as favorites particularly because of the stone color. My undergraduate university mascot was the owl and school colors were cherry red and white. The earrings are perfect!
