by PreRaphaelite » Jul 20, 2019 So I’ve been earring-less for several weeks. And with my small (read: zero) budget, there were slim pickings. But I found these in an auction, and crossed my fingers (and toes, and eyeballs, etc) and bid and won. Been dying to share but wanted them in my greedy little fingers first, just in case they were as awful as the online pics. Surprise! They’re great. 9ct rose gold, all original, and the 4.5mm paste (glass?) is good enough for now, and will be replaced eventually with some semi-precious-something-or-others, probably amethyst. Sorry no ear shots yet. Behold ye, my new studs! I am dancing for joy today! And the ‘gang’ all together: Thanks for looking!
