I've always thought that larger hoops or anything ornate overpowers my face. I received these beautiful earrings as a gift. They are lightweight and delicate and unusual. I like the way they gently "shimmy" when I move. You do have to be careful with the clasp--make sure it is securely in the small hole.

These earrings are gorgeous. I received them as a gift with the matching bracelet this Christmas. The gold colour is gorgeous and they tinkle beautifully in the ears, but unfortunately the wires are too short and become unclasped very easily. I wore them at Christmas and they fell off all the time. Unfortunately I can't recommend these earrings.

            My mother loves everything about these earrings. I think she has lost about 3 of them over the past 5 years and she has wanted new ones every time. Even her friends have purchased them as well. My mother has told me that every time she wears them she has people ask about them and comment on them.

                These earrings are gorgeous. I received them as a gift with the matching bracelet this Christmas. The gold colour is gorgeous and they tinkle beautifully in the ears, but unfortunately the wires are too short and become unclasped very easily. I wore them at Christmas and they fell off all the time. Unfortunately I can't recommend these earrings.

                  The trinity knot, also called a triquetra, is an unending three-cornered shape, used throughout Celtic art as far back as the 8th century Book of Kells. Artists and craftsmen have used it to represent three-fold concepts for centuries: past, present, and future; daughter, mother, grandmother; and the Christian Holy Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Today many people embrace the trinity knot as a symbol of Irish or Scottish heritage or spiritual beliefs.

                  The Jauhari Bazaar comes alive at sunset. Located in the center of Jaipur—the pink city of Rajastan—jewelers, gem dealers, and chai hawkers fill the narrow marketplace to capacity. Faceted gems compete for attention alongside piles of glass beads. The riot of color and noise is overwhelming and exhilarating. In the shadows and alleyways surrounding markets like Jauhari, small-scale artisans create jewelry by hand. Made in one of these easy-to-miss workshops, these feather-light, gold-plated earrings feature a delicate fleur-de-lis pattern above a single teardrop glass bead.

                  The Tuscan village of Caprese Michelangelo—the birthplace of the famed Renaissance artist—is nestled in the hills among chestnut trees, small vineyards, and fields of sunflowers. This picturesque landscape was first settled by the Etruscans, and our reproduction coin jewelry is inspired by their precise gold metalwork. Gold-plated, Etruscan medallions alternate with reproduction Roman-era coins treated with a verdigris patina to create a museum-worthy conversation piece. Each piece is handcrafted in a studio in Caprese Michelangelo, just down the road from the artist's former home.
