These are intense, aren't they? The stones are so pretty I had to just leave them by themselves- they need no embellishing. They are Abalone shell and turquoise cabochons- smooth in the front and polished, and smooth in the back but not polished. I have used 14k gold filled wire and the earwires are the same. Please choose your earwire preference. The Moroccan chandelier is gold vermeil. The apprx length is 2".
