My friend, Cari is a go-getter.  You need someone to produce a huge event?  She's your girl.  And, she'll do it with heels (and a smile) on!  She's has a classic, relatable style.  This is why I named these earrings after her.

The teardrop is cast in 100% recycled brass (gold plated) and has gold-filled chains dangling down. The teardrop is approximately 1 1/2" long. The earring hooks are 14-karat gold-filled.
