If you are looking for a place to share your travel photos and stories, then try BigRoom.

Considering that silver is currently selling at about $32 per ounce, my first suspicion would be that they may not be made of real silver. Some of the alloys that shine like silver contain nickle and lots of people are allergic to nickle. A good test would be to tape one of the earrings flat against your skin for a day or two and see if a rash develops.
