Color: warm tonesVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
While there is a photo of the earrings on the product page, it doesn't really tell the whole story. I was excited to receive these, but when I opened them I wasn't sure which color set I'd ordered (warm or cool). The colors aren't rich or classy, they're more bright than I'd have liked; kind of cheap-looking. In addition, they look like fake pearls that have been flattened - they're not a nice round shape. The posts and backs do appear to be nice silver. I'll wear them, but they weren't what I was hoping for!

Color: warm tonesVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I must say that I was dismayed when I first opened the box containing these pearls. The first thing that jumped into my head when I saw them was "Christmas ornaments." The colors are much more garish than pictured. I am sure that this must just be a matter of taste, but to me part of the beauty of pearls is the muted iridescence, which is not very apparent in this set, except in the one pair of white pearls. To me, this set just looks cheap.

I own other dyed pearls, and I love them, so it's not a matter a lack of familiarity with the look of dyed pearls.

The colors are listed in the product description. Let me translate:
"White" = white
"Pink" = peach
"Light Blue" = bright teal
"Mint Green" = bright yellow-green
"Gold" = yellow
"Lavender" = bright lavender
"Burgundy" = bright cranberry

The surface of each pearl is smooth-looking, with no obvious pits or swirls. In running the finger across the surface, a faint roughness can be detected on some, indicating either a rather shallow thickness of nacre, or slight damage done to the surface by the dying process.

To me the pearls appear small for being rated at 7-7.5 mm in diameter. Therefore, without measuring them, I would guess them to be closer to 7mm than 7.5mm.

I tugged on the pearls to try to determine if they are firmly attached to the setting, and they appear to be so. The backs are standard size, not microscopic.

If you are looking for brightly colored stud earrings, you may like these. If you are looking for soft muted pearly tones, you may well be disappointed in these. I vastly prefer my dyed Multi Color 7 Pair 8-9mm Pearl Earring Set from Orkyd pearls.

I received these earrings at no cost via the Amazon Vine Program. I do believe that had I paid for them, I would return the set.

Update, November 2011:
The product page was unavailable for a long time after I received these earrings. I just checked to see if it was finally available, and was shocked to see a list price of $59.00. NO WAY are these earrings worth that much money.

I had purchased these for my daughter-in-law for Christmas but sent them back because the colors were washed out and they seemed so large for button Pearls. Plus, the package did not include anything indicating they were Freshwater Cultured Pearls.

Color: cool tonesVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
My wife loves these for casual wear at her office. The pearls are larger than we expected, according to the box label, they range from 7 to 7.5mm. Definitely not huge, but still bigger than the usual bargain priced "petite" sizes. The screw post is the right length for her smaller sized ear lobes and the end cap is sized right for security. The selection of colors in the seven earring set are "fun" too.

Unfortunately, at this time, I can't determine if they are a good value or not. I received the earring set free under the Vine program. The actual Amazon product page that would show the price isn't available at this time. Under $20 and they are a terrific bargain, higher than that, well it all depends. I'll update this review when the product page is fixed.

Color: cool tonesVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I have had my eye on these sets (in warm and cool tones) for a while, so I didn't hesitate when they appeared in Vine. I've had good experiences with the Amazon.com Collection line of jewelery. I bought and love the Freshwater Coral Baroque Pearl Endless Necklace (6-7mm), 50"; I have it in tonal rose too, and plan to order additional colors. So I wanted a variety of pearl studs in different colors to coordinate. THESE ARE PERFECT! The cool tones set includes Chocolate, Champaigne, Mint Green, Peach, Peacock Black, Silver Gray and White. They came in a long gray gift box.

The colors are very true, and the black is close to the color of Tahitian black pearls (which are actually dark gray). The white is a subtley different shade than in the warm tones set, providing another option to match the varied shades of "white" pearls come in. Please see my uploaded pictures of the actual earrings I received. The size is just right. They are large enough to look good alone, but also small enough to be worn in a secnd earring hole. The posts are sturdy, thick sterling silver and the back attaches firmly. They look and feel well made. The pearl is subtle button style - not perfectly round, but not so oddly shaped as baroque pearls. So, they complement other shapes quite well. These are great for everyday wear, or special occasions. I would not hesitate to pay $50 for this set, so the $35 price as of this writing is a bargain ($5 per pair!!) and easily worth the purchase. Highly recommended, as is the warm tones set!

Bought these for my wife, and was severely disappointed because 4 of the 7 pairs did not match their partner in shape. Obviously no quality control was used in sorting the pearls and matching them up into pairs. DO NOT BUY.

I bought and love the Freshwater Multi-Tonal Rose Baroque Pearl Endless Necklace (6-7mm), 50"; I have it in coral too, and plan to order additional colors.

The colors are very true, except for the gold. It looks like a dark cream pearl. That turns out to be good actually - across the two sets there are a few shades of white/cream pearls to help match with other pearl jewelry. Please see my uploaded pictures of the actual earrings I received. The size is just right. They are large enough to look good alone, but also small enough to be worn in a secnd earring hole. The posts are sturdy, thick sterling silver and the back attaches firmly. They look and feel well made.

Color: cool tonesVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
These are plain and simple earrings that go with everything. With the wide variety of colors (including white) you always have a pair that matches your clothing. They are a nice size and appear to be of good quality. The shape was a bit of a suprise as the pearls are not totally round -- they have a slight oval shape like they have been slightly smushed. Both my 16-year-old daughter and I can wear them and they look appropriate. She has a double piercing in each ear and she has been snitching them to wear along with a small diamond stud.

My only complaint is the packaging they came in. The sheet that holds all the earrings is cheap cardboard and the box itself is cheap looking. Not really a problem unless you are giving them as a gift and then the package doesn't seem to fit the quality of the jewelry.

These are exactly as pictured and really give you some options since you have a so many colors to choose from when trying to match to the right outfit. My wife has worn just about every color by now and she looks great every time.
