from London, Ontario
I bought the natural color. They are tarnished, but will clean them because there is nothing wrong with the matching necklace. The color is very delicate and I will wear them after a good cleaning.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

These are Tarnished
These earrings are tarnished, almost black and the silver is chipping off the sides. I am done with this line of jewellery. I've ordered jewellery items in the past and they looked great when they arrived, but, within 3 months they were tarnished and not worth trying to work to get it back to par. I'm thinking the silver is not rhodium plated. Rhodium plated keeps the silver from tarnishing. If I had read before I purchased that they were from "Himalayan Gems". I would have never purchased them in the first place.

replacement pair not great either
from Stoney Creek, Ontario
After more than 4 weeks of waiting for an exchange, and calling several times to track down what was happening, my replacement earrings finally arrived. To my dismay, they were completely tarnished, and like the first pair, they were minus one rubber stopper for one earwire, the other one was loose in the bag (just like the previous pair). I did not want to send back again, so I got my trusty silver cloth and started polishing. Ladies, be prepared to spend 10 minutes polishing off the tarnish! It did not come off easily. I've polished a ton of silver jewelry items, and never have I had such a time removing tarnish. I even tried a jewelry cleaning solution, which always works but did not on these earrings. A lot of buffing finally did it, but the silver is finished with a bark-like impression so it doesn't shine as when it's smooth. The stones in this set did not have the big occlusions as the previous set, but there still were minor ones. I give these earrings a one star because of the work I have to do to remove the tarnish, the missing rubber earwire stoppers, and the poor-looking setting for the stone, which would be much nicer if it were smooth and shiny....then the contrast of the silver against the stone would be much nicer. I am keeping them but I wouldn't recommend anyone buy them unless they are prepared to remove tarnish, and I will think twice before buying Himalayan Gems again

Nice, but tarnished earrings
from FORT MCMURRAY
The earrings are nice and they are light. The natural chalcedony stone has a nice pale colour which does not appear faded at all. My problem is that they appear tarnished.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Not the greatest
After a lot of thought, and after I noticed the price reduction, I bought these earrings. I was a little hesitant because I've had some quality issues with past Himalayan Gems purchases. This, sadly, was no different. The earrings arrived in a tarnished state, with one rubber stopper for the earwire loose in the bag, and one missing. Clearly this item had been previously returned, and there is no checking of the item by TSC when it is put back in stock. Furthermore, one of the chalcedony stones had two LARGE whitish occlusions in it, which ruined the appearance of the stone and the earring. Taking in account all the above, there was no way I wanted to keep them, but I had applied a $20 off card toward the purchase and so would have lost that value. So I am asking for an exchange, and hoping the replacement earrings are better. Very disappointed. Not worth the price, even with the price reduction.

By Love the Shopping Channel
from Caledon Ontario
Bought the earrings and matching pendant for a Xmas present and a very disappointed. The rose quartz is washed out and looks like clear glass. Definitely not nice enough in my opinion to give for a gift especially at this price. I own several pieces from the line and this is the first time I am returning an item. Way overpriced compared to other items you can choose from. Sorry.
dew drops for your ears
I purchased these earrings & matching pendant in the rose quartz. A simple, classic & lovely set - the faceted tear drops sparkle and the neutral blush tone matches any outfit.

These earrings arrived today, and they are lovely. They are quite a bit smaller than I thought they would be, but not too heavy to wear. I like the tasteful, modern design and the stones which are faceted on both sides (the same front and back). The rose quartz stones are very lightly coloured and mostly transparent so the facets on both the front and back are visible for a delightful multiplied sparkle as the light catches them. Natural blue chalcedony is one of my favourite stones so I ordered those too. The soft blue draws me in. It's difficult to take your eyes off the colour, but the chalcedony is more opaque so you can't see the faceting on the back through the front, making them less sparkly. For shorter hair, I think the blue is more interesting, but the pink shows up better with longer hair because of the sparkle. Both pairs are beautiful. I can't decide which pair to keep. (I have longer hair right now.) Good price. Andrew, I would have liked more substantial ear wires.
