These are great earrings. We call them a martini setting. The nice thing about this style is the base of them can set into your ear just a bit and in doing so they sit straight and don't stick out as far from your ear. These are set with a total of 1.02 total carat size of Shelby simulated Aquamarine. They are made from solid 14kt white gold. We can make them in yellow gold as well. Our simulated aquamarine is 40% harder than natural and therefore much more durable.
