These are my new go-to summer earrings and they've been a great success. Bronze squares overlaid with pressed silver solder, and then the most beautiful baroque freshwater pearl in a lustrous rose gold finish. The pearl is about one inch long. These are post earrings (sterling silver post & back), and are lightweight and so feminine. I have a few strands of these pearls but once they're gone, they're gone. Great for mother-of-the-bride, bridesmaids, grad and just because you want something lovely.
