Just picked these out on a birthday shopping spree. They are gorgeous! The mother-of-pearl is shiny and eye catching and the two tone with antiquing is unique and pretty. Love the size and can't wait to wear them! Wish JA would make a Garnet only version, but since I saw the Alessandra garnet and MOP earrings and garnet only ring in the discontinuing case, I know there's no chance of that now. So disappointing! I'll have to settle for one that doesn't match my ring.
