These shine. . . a lot! The small chevrons reflect light as the 3" dangles sway about. A white freshwater pearl fits perfectly in line and then a bit of direction and color change happen below. The gold and silver intersection draws your attention to the peachy "chocolate moonstone" droplet. These are so much fun to wear I had to make a pair for myself too. 14K gold over sterling silver ear wires, plated chevrons.
