Jobs can be strict about what earrings can be worn to work. They tend to leave only the boring earrings within the dress-code. These earrings can break out of the rut and bring a little style back while still complying with the dress code. I am also a gal that still wears earrings while exercising, or a lazy day around the house. These earrings can fit that bill too. Nice quality, substantial sterling silver vermeiled with a nice layer of 18k gold. I wish the pyramids were brushed gold looking, but it's not a deal-breaker. I saw these in real 14K gold, but they were a bit pricey for earrings I won't wear all the time. These fit the bill, look great, and won't break the bank.
