These earrings are made from genuine peridot green fresh water pearl gemstone beads, measuring approximately 6mm each. They are stud earrings wire wrapped with nickel and lead free silver plated wire. The base metal is copper giving it a nice weight to it and purity as it is lead and nickel free as it isn't mixed with any other metal. It is silver plated and then a clear enamel coating is baked on. It is non-tarnishing, won't rub or fade. I personally love this wire because it is nickel and lead free, unlike sterling silver which is mixed with other metals to give it strength. People with metal allergies to sterling and fine silver need not worry about this metal, and can enjoy the look and feel of silver without the green skin or rash.
These are the exact earrings you will receive.
These earrings are the birthstone colour for our August babies :)
