Go to a Free People store for these if you can! They are beautiful if you happen to come upon the good stock of these earrings. I had initially ordered a blue pair from the website and the pair I received was
NOTHING like what was in the picture. They were tiny and looked like opaque rocks, nothing like the clear blue crystal in the photos on the website. I promptly returned them at a store which they took back with no problem. A few weeks later I spotted these earrings at a Free People store on display. I asked if I could see the others they had in the back stock. They were all very beautiful, crystal clear just like in the photos AND also varied greatly in shape and size. I almost had trouble picking out one pair because they all looked so lovely.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by AmourFou natural stones, natural beauty
i purchased the Herkimer diamond studs and i couldn't be happier. They are not exactly as pictured - one is slightly bigger than the other (but just barely), they do have some grey inclusions in them (which i actually like), but no problem for me - natural stones means that no two are alike, right? They are big but not heavy and go with everything, I've been wearing mine every day (with some other styles that I also bought from FP) and I get non-stop compliments on them. Also they come on a cute card with a description of the stone attached, so really nice to give as a gift. Pricey but worth it, in my opinion!

Mine were also more milky and grey than pictured. One of the stones has some interesting carbon inclusions in it that I like a lot. The other stone has a crystal 'tumor' growing on the face of it that is kind of ugly and features no carbon whatsoever so it sort of clashes. The backs are snug but have a tendency to get twisted vertically onto the posts which is annoying and makes them feel cheaper. Working in jewelry for a long time I can vouch that the diamonds seem authentic, although they are what is normally considered 'industrial quality.' To be honest that was what drew me to them, I always enjoyed the personality in raw, blemished gemstones. The only real disappointment in these was the awkward crystal growth on the face of one of my studs.

i ordered these in the diamond white and they have some grey in them. they are still crystal looking but they are almost grey/charcoal crystal. They are still beautiful but not what the description said. I am sure every pair is different but just dont expect them to be so clear.

I got the clear studs in the mail yesterday. Cute but expensive for what I got. They're almost so see through that you barely notice you're wearing earrings but they'll basically match with everything.
