Both sets of earrings are pricey but they’ll stand the test of time, each making a statement in a their own subtle way. They’re different and look beautifully made. The CZ Cube Earrings encase a pearl within a see-through cube, AND they’re double sided. The Cat Saltwater Cultured Pearl Stud Earrings are for kitty lovers. They are extremely delicate, which is what I love most about them. They would be mine if they were Yorkies — and I don’t even wear earrings.
