This set is beaded with 11/0 seed beads. The hooks are 24k gold and the necklace clasp is 14k gold. There are well over 1000 beads in the necklace alone. The necklace is 20 inches and is peyote style beading over a 3mm black leather cord for the core, which makes the necklace very strong and durable, while sparkly and gorgeous at the same time. The triangle earrings have the true Pittsburgh touch, as they are shaped in a triangle. Each earring is about the size of a quarter.
