 The  question with earrings…..

8de044962c8731b52847bb6d993ce63cWhich do you prefer when wearing earrings?  Posts or wires?   These green chrysoprase earrings with pave crystal accents from Margaret Elizabeth are posts, while the exquisite  red-bronze medals from Andrea Barnett are on wires. For those with sensitive skin, it’s typically not the style that makes the difference, it’s the material.  Surgical steel, titanium, 14kt gold, sterling silver….the list is as long as the materials that make the earrings.

Great earrings from Ayala Bar – these on posts!
