This is what 18 kit gold looks a like. Pure bright gold. Filigree style that sparkle and gleem. These dome shaped earrings are 18 karat gold plated but no one will know they are not full 100%. Beautiful filigree detail. Great safety clasp. Softly dangling from the ear. Lightweight and so stylish. My new favorite. Look like a million bucks without the cost of full 18 KT. These are beautiful.
