The Gayatri Post Earrings are absolutely stunning, I purchased these beauties in the ruby and they are dazzling. I get the best of both worlds-sparkling diamond-like stones and beautiful, sophisticated pearls. I decided to go with the post rather than the hooks because I don't like the way the hooks drag down on my earlobes. The post back earrings are very light weight and I find them comfortable to wear with no dragging down on my earlobes. I had my eyes on these earrings for several months and I am so happy I was able to purchase them during a weekly deal.
