These are really beautiful -and despite their size - delicate earrings. If you are a dragon lover, they are a MUST have. The colors are vibrant greens, gold, and black. The most accurate photo of colors is the last - on the palm.These used to be screwbacks. My mother changed them to pierced earrings. The posts and backs are 14k. The posts are threaded for extra security in wearing. AND the posts are delicate - light on the ear but easily bent with rough handling. 1" diameter Marked: "JAPAN" with japanese characters above.
