Reminded me somehow of museum pieces in look. Wore earrings with classic gold bead necklace, and another time with gold circle chains.

Not as pictured, had to return.
These looked nothing like the picture, the stone was so light you could barely see color and the gold did not look like gold, it was brassy and cheap looking. On top of all that they did not hang right on the ear. One of the few times I had to return my purchase at Ross Simons, usually I love their stuff.
