These great dangle lever-back earrings are made from solid 14kt gold. They are set with a total of 1.0 carat size of Shelby simulated emerald. Our simulated emeralds are in most ways better than natural emeralds. Ours are much much harder and more sparkly. Not to mention, they don't have the cracks and inclusions often found in natural emeralds. AND.. they all come with our best in the business guarantee. We can set a pair of these with ant of our gems. We can make them for you in white gold as well.
