These Earrings hang 1.5" from the piercing, are comfortable & light-weight. The 'Svart' Earrings are Simple and Gothic. What is most appealing about these Drops is due to the contrast from the Raw, white Quartz Crystals, prong-set in Dark, Oxidized Sterling Silver. Named after the word 'Black' which is 'Svart' in Swedish, representing the blackness of the Silver. *The Raw Quartz Crystals vary in shape but are always similar* If you wish, you may choose to select The Svart Earrings as 'non-oxidized' Sterling Silver from the drop-down arrow.
