These festive earrings capture the light wonderfully through the varying shades of green crystal dangling playfully from the detailed Bali-style link. Created with Swarovski crystal, lead-free fancy pewter and sterling silver findings, these earrings are fit for a princess. They're great for an August birthday gift or anytime of year. These lovelies dangle at a perfect 1 1/2" from the earwire.
