i was looking for a pair of earrings to wear to work every day and these are perfect. not too big, not too small, go with everything, pretty, not too flashy, and they look high-quality. they are about the size of a quarter, and the stones only go 1/2 way around on both the inside and outside, which is not obvious in the photos
I bought these as a birthday gift for my mother. They actually caused a bit of an argument. She kept telling me I spent too much money. Finally, I told her how much they cost and she coudln't believe it. She loves them. They make a great everyday wear earring.
Ha ha I laughed at the trickery these little earrings played on me. If you look closely those "sparkles" are really just silver, and there is ONE! cute tinsy winsy little actual diamond on each earring. They are cute and fit well, the size is perfect, the clasp is good quality, but I guess you REALLY get what you pay for and now I know the true value of real diamonds I guess! I still love them.
The online pictures make this piece look like the diamond "accents" go all the way around the inside and outside of the hoop when in fact they only cover half of them. Also, there's very little luster to the diamond accents and will not fool anyone. Not recommended.
These hoops are understated elegance! The construction is unique 18 Karat yellow gold over sterling silver with diamonds set in silvertone beaded detail set off a dazzling sparkle! Where else can you purchase jewelry as eyecatching as this for the price of a Frappuchino and a croissant? A Must have to anyone's collection!
