These Obsidian drops I actually picked up while I was in Mexico. I really wish I would have gotten more! These are so beautiful and elegant. They are a little bit on the heavier side, but I have worn my pair for several hours and I was just fine. They would be perfect for an elegant event, or a great night out. Wherever you wear them, these are defiantly up-do earrings! You do not want to hide these beauties behind your hair!
