"Iris" earrings are a best-seller, due to their simple elegance. They are understated and unique! This pair is made with the highest quality rose quartz. These are some of the most translucent rose quartz I've ever come across. Because the color of rose quartz comes from fiber-like inclusions, it is rare to see stones with both excellent color AND clarity. These earrings are sterling silver. The ear wires and horseshoe components are handmade. The earrings measure 1 and 5/8" including the ear wires.
