Rated 3 out of 5 by Frankie Lovely stones but didn't like the setting
This apatite is truly a lovely colour, very much an aqua blue as opposed to blue-green which some apatite tends towards. I even found it to be more vivid than it appeared when presented on air. However, for me the crown setting just doesn't work. It makes the stone stick out too far from under the ear, and when you see the earrings face-on they look odd, like an L-shape. I think leverbacks set with a solitaire stone are tricky to get right, they are either disappear against your hair, or, as in this case, they are set too proud. Perhaps it would have been better to offer these stones as studs? I also felt there were too many claws around the front of the stones which spoiled their look.
