I've explored many variations of teardrop shapes, especially for earrings, and I went on the search for a word other than teardrop. And I found one. It's a good word. Lachrymiform. (It means teardrop shaped.)
There's a full rainbow of these simple and very wearable borosilicate earrings. Available in 16 different colors, these earrings are finished with sterling silver ear wires, plated jump ring. Most of these colors are transparent, beautifully catching light and sparkle. Each component is approximately 1.5" long, and with the ear wires measure just over 2."
