I love these earrings! In fact, I loved them so much, I made a second pair with green beads. They are long at 5-1/2" (including the 14k earring wire). They are made up of 3 tear drop shaped pieces which are 2-1/4" long and 3/4" at their widest point. I gave each piece a curved shape which I think helps give each one a little pop, so they don't just hang flatly. Each piece hangs from sterling chain at slightly varied lengths. All of them hang from a sterling rolo chain with a square shaped purple and clear handmade glass bead for a bit of color. Each earring weighs in at 18 grams of sterling silver with 1/2 gram of 14k gold for the earring wire. I wanted to make sure these were not too heavy, so I wore them for several hours and I was fine. (I never wear earrings, so if I was OK any "earring wearer" should be all set.) If you like attention, I guarantee you'll get it wearing these earrings!
