Rated 3 out of 5Â by Casey3 Small and delicate
I have many abalone earring styles, and these don't measure up. The drops material is a very thin layer, making them less durable, and the pearl does have a purple cast (in this case, the photo is accurate) instead of a creamy white true mother of pearl.
Not the best value for the money, but the style is lovely, and that's the reason I'll keep them.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by mjb03002 Purchase in Store
I purchased these earrings has a gift. While I would have preferred purchasing them in store, they were out of stock, and therefore I ordered them on line. While the earrings were a great value, the shell part that is suppose to be purple happened to be almost completely white in the pair that I had ordered. This was unfortunate because I was looking for a pair of purple earrings. I understand that being made of shell, it is impossible to have 2 exact earrings as shown in the picture, but I was disappointed that they were so different than what I had expected. While I would absolutely purchase these earring again (in fact, I would like a pair for myself!), I would be sure to purchase them in store in the future so that I am able to see exactly what I am going to get.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by PoorCustServ Was a gift - She loved it!
This piece was given to my boss as a gift. She loved it. Said it was just her style. The back is solid sterling silver. The piece is high quality, but you do have to be careful when selecting it because the natural stone has variations and I had to look at 5 different ones from 2 different stores before choosing the nicest one for her. Some of the pieces I saw weren't as polished as the one I chose or as colorful of a stone. I suggest going to a brick and mortar store to shop for this item.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by 1220 Love these Abalone earrings....
Fell in love with this Abalone earring set immediately. I love the inlaid stones separated by sterling siliver band that set the beautiful colors off. I love the purple on one side and the different colors on the other side. I am a new customer now for the Abalone and I will be buying more.
