The shell in these earrings looks like a rainbow sky after it has just rained over dark mountains - Or - aurora borealis at night against dark mountains. Either way they are really beautiful and unique picture earrings. The shell is shimmering abalone that is bezel set, slightly concave, in sterling silver. The earrings measure 1-1/8" from the wire and 7/8" wide. The earrings weigh 5.1 grams each. Lovely little pictures!
