    Beautiful wedding earring

    Posted by Shannon on Oct 19th 2016

    After a lot of searching both online and in stores, I finally found the earrings I wanted for my wedding. I was nervous about buying earrings online. But when these beauties arrived, they were absolutely prefect!! Nice size and not too heavy (always worry about earring making my ear lopes droop). You can tell they were well made and they fit my wedding theme perfectly.
