I ordered a few pairs of these earrings to give as gifts. They were okay for the price, but nothing special, in my opinion. Beware that some of the pearls have blemishes, so you're taking a chance by ordering without being able to inspect them first. Another cautionary statement is that the backings on these are definitely not the best quality - they're on the light side and don't fit very tightly, which increases the risk of them falling out and being lost. I wasn't able to tighten them the way you can with more substantial backings. Finally, beware that these come in a little plastic ziplock bag inside a very ordinary-looking suede-like orangey-red bag with a gold "O" stamped on the front. To give as gifts, you may want to purchase a nicer box from a jewelry store. The way "O" packages these definitely doesn't do much for the presentation.
I ordered these for my niece to have for Christmas, and I'm very happy with them. She's old enough that I wanted to get her something real, as opposed to fake or cheap, but I didn't want to get something that I would feel bad about if she lost them. These pearls were perfect. They're just the right size for a child's ear, but not so small that she won't be able to wear them into adulthood. The pearls look beautiful, and I don't think the posts are going to be too long for her to wear comfortably. I am looking forward to getting her the matching bracelet or necklace for her next gift. These shipped quickly, and arrived faster than I thought they would. My only wish is that they came in a gift box, as opposed to a zip top bag inside a pouch, but I'll be buying an earring presentation box so it's not that big a deal. I think these are a great value, even with buying the service plan just in case. I've gotten pearls off Overstock a few times now, and I've never been disappointed.
I was very pleased with the pearls, they have a beautiful sheen and they are very delicate. Although they are quite small, they are perfect for a baby girl, for whom I purchased them for. Nicely packaged. They were a gift, so time will tell if they wear well.
I do love the little earrings, they are what I was looking for,but one of the pearls fell off before I could put them on, had to glue it back on. That is the only thing bad about it, hence the 1 star on workmanship. Would I recommend this product? yes, but be prepared to glue the pearl back on.
Very nice set of 9mm black pearl earrings. These were purchased to compliment a black pearl Akoya necklace purchased some months ago for our wedding anniversary. As many have mentioned...buy a necklace and earrings together. However, my wife loves them and it was a nice gift for our first date anniversary. The set is now complete.
This item took 6 days to even ship. After a couple calls to overstock customer service they explained that this level of service is normal and that I had to high of expectations. I will never order again from such an ill ran and uncaring company. I will also refuse the package and will expect a full refund.
I ordered the small size as I wanted an understated/professional look for work. Nice nacre with the classic iridescent coloring, NOT the flat black of the inferior ones. 14k posts should not irritate anyone through a long day. A very nice CLASSIC addition to anyone's jewelry wardrobe. Recommend these!
I got these for my sister, they are incredibly delicate little pearls. Very pretty. Very good price.
