Rated 4 out of 5 by Northbay Shopper Purchased/Returned/Repurchased
I bought these last year and returned them for the same reason as everyone else, too expensive, couldn't rationalize the price. They went on clearance and were waitlist only when I saw them again. They came back in stock so I bought them on clearance bc they ARE pretty. Sleeping beauty is like the stock market, prices are skyrocketing bc of the hype. I go to Tonopah, NV to buy Royston turquoise which is a beautiful olive green but this year prices quadrupled bc that mine is now closed and the government is making the owners clean up the site. That's the main reason I decided to purchase these again. The clearance price is pretty good compared to what I've seen out there for contemporary styles. Vintage styles are even more expensive. So buy these now. They are sexy, sleek and elegant with lots of movement. Pretty color and interesting variety of shapes. The lever back is very pretty too.
Rated 2 out of 5 by bindey not a good value for me
after getting these home, I realized my expectations were not met and considering I have many Sleeping Beauty Jewelry pieces; the stones were darker than my others; I will keep looking, but I'm thinking maybe if you make a pair with 3 bigger stones in 14k, that would make a statement for sure...........love the lever backs
2 stars for the leverbacks

...it looks like I have the unfortunate task of being the lone dissenter here. For the full QVC price/tax/shipping to get these earrings home ($$$), I had high expectations, & so I'm reviewing them accordingly. With regard to the design, they're exactly what I was looking for - a linear turquoise earring that makes a statement, but, at the same time, is not overdone. I also love that the stones are all different shapes. I think that adds some subtle interest. Another plus is that the earrings are articulated from top to bottom, & so you have lots of movement on the ear. But otherwise, I was disappointed with these earrings on several counts. The sleeping beauty turquoise in person is not the quality I was expecting at this price. It doesn't even remotely begin to approach in color any of my other SBT pieces, all of which are American-made, & most of which were purchased at far more reasonable prices. High quality SBT should be a well-saturated, vivid blue. These are your average, unremarkable, blue-green turquoise stones. A few of them even have a bit of black matrix (along with some white). And what's worse is that several of the mountings have gaps in between the bezel work & stone. The turquoise is simply glued in & not actually secured by the bezels. There is even some left over glue on the back side of the stones. I just don't feel that is appropriate craftsmanship for a pair of sterling & turquoise earrings in this price range. If these earrings, which are manufactured in Thailand, were more appropriately priced at, say, $129, I would have easily given them 4 stars, because my expectations would have been vastly different. But I just can't justify the price of these earrings for what we're getting here. I love the Q, but, in my opinion, this is a rare example of them missing the mark in the "value" department.

These are truly beautiful earrings, but the price is twice the amount it should be. the stones are nicely matched and the silver is good weight but even still I could not get past the price, I sent them back, with shipping and tax the price was just way too much! I decided I could live without them.
Rated 5 out of 5 by galintexas Great purchase
I have been looking for sleeping beauty earrings for awhile and these are just what I was looking for. The stones are bright and beautiful, they are comfortable to wear and length is perfect. I am so glad I made the purchase even though they are pricey.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Queen of Goth EXCELLENT QUALITY
These earrings are pricey, but worth ever penny. Substantial weight without being too heavy, outstanding color matched stones, simply gorgeous. They feel and look great. You won't be disappointed if you can get past the price.
Rated 5 out of 5 by cbcool Stunning!
These earrings are stunning! The quality of the turquoise is exceptional! I have received so many compliments. The price seemed a little high
Rated 4 out of 5 by californiadreaming Nice & Long, but
I ordered these earrings because they were nice & long, & because I start buying turquoise when warm weather arrives! The turquoise stones are beautiful, but I believe the earrings are overpriced. I believe these earrings would be a better design with the Frenchwire. I don't like lever backs because you don't have the gemstone closest to your earlobe, & you can see the back portion of the lever back in the front. Therefore, I returned these earrings.
