Beautiful, with a caveat
I was so excited to see these earrings--I have a similar pair in yellow gold that is a go-to for me, but really wanted a white gold pair. They arrived yesterday, and are lovely. I must comment, as a caution to others, that I noticed yellow gold in a recessed area of the closure. I am assuming that they are not actually made of a white gold alloy, but have been plated with rhodium. I personally think this should have been noted in the description, since plating can wear off, and it's always an unpleasant surprise when it does--plus, for a pricey item that is represented as the finest of all the gold offerings from QVC, it is a shortcut that should never have been taken. Nonetheless, they are beautiful, and I plan to keep them. I suspect, however, that the pleasure of the purchase will always be tinged with disappointment, since they aren't as they were represented.
