The designer is clearly very talented. The earrings are beautiful. However inspite of the description says it's natural fresh water pearls, the pearls are made of white shell of the pearl and not the pearls themselves. I am planning on giving this away as a bridal gift and now I can't because it's not real pearl. The earring back is very soft and it got bent when I tried to put the earring back on. I hope the needles will not break. Earrings are beautiful and I am keeping them.
