Small, but...






















These 2 pair of earrings are some of my favorites. They are the size of an American nickel and just a hair larger than a penny! I'm stuck on this glorious champagne gold cubic zirconia color. They are so elegant. The other pair are garnet red (vs. deep, deep red) cubic zirconia briolettes. These baubles are very delicate. There are 5, 6x6 mm CZ briolettes, each separated by a gold vermeil nugget on a 28 gauge wire. The sparkle from the CZ is unmatched! There is a definite left and a right so that these lovely, full earrings face forward. 1 1/2" in length with the hook. They're small, but striking. Check them out in my Etsy shop.

I love the champagne gold ones!

Just beautiful Amy...I do love a little sparkle...personally my preference would be the size you made these. When I was younger I liked to wear large dangles but not so much anymore...these are a perfect size!!

I don't have a favorite because I would wear both depending on the day/outfit!! :0)

Cheers

Thank you Allie....they are very 'wearable'...I have a pair w/ the dark garnets and have a hard time NOT wearing them...:))

Hey Lizzy!!...the champagne gold is an amazing stone and these both can be worn w/ jeans or to a fancy night out on the town!!!

Heather, this post is for you!!! We've been talking about the garnets so much...I actually thought that I had ordered the darker red stones, but these are very pretty...and it's funny, because, I was thinking maybe they were the size of a quarter... they are small but FULL and have the feel of 'bigger'...they are light as a feather as well, which is nice...I ALWAYS wear posts because I would never know if I lost one...they just slip right over the hook...:))))

beautiful Amy...
the garnet red would win out for me as I love red and although I don't wear earrings much anymore..I'm a sucker for dangly earrings hehe..
and you are so right these would suit casual or dressy outfits..
I love that you have designed them with a distinct right and left too...
have a grand day :))

I can see where you would favor the garnets Kim...I'm a sucker for dangle earrings as well, and w/ ALL the turtlenecks I've been wearing, my personal collection is getting a good run...although, I do have a pair of the dark garnets and I love them so much, I'm having a hard time wearing anything else...the left and right design has worked out really well...that way YOU get to see them along w/ the rest of the world...:)))))

I have been meaning to stop for a few days now and tell you that these are just stunning Amy.

The garnet is my birthstone. Oh I wish I could get them. But, my camera lens cut our budget to the bone!:-))))
