I bought a pair of these earrings a few months ago but then lost one of the pair. So, I ordered another pair. But the second pair I received were a total disappointment. They have no luster and look very drab next to the earring left from the original pair. If the first pair had looked like this I would never have ordered another pair.
I needed pearl ear studs, because I was going to a convention in Chicago where attendees were coming from all over the world, and I had lost my old pair. I chose this particular size because other ear studs that I have are this size and look the best with my smaller ear lobes. I also like the simple look of the pearl studs, because they look good with everything in my wardrobe.
I bought these pearl studs to replace a lost pair, the first set of pearls I had ever owned ... and wow ... THESE ARE SO MUCH PRETTIER! The luster on the pearl is exquisite just as the earlier reviewer's had pointed out. At first glance I thought they were slightly smaller than I wanted, but as soon as I put them on, the quality of the pearl really stood out, and they looked just right! All I need now is to convince my boyfriend to by me a matching necklace!
The pearls are beautiful and well matched. I am especially pleased with the color and luster. The size is perfect, too--large enough to be fully seen when I am looking straight forward, and small enough for my small earlobes. I like little gold hoops for everyday wear, but it makes me happy now to put these on in the morning and wear them all day just to feel pretty!
My dad passed away on Christmas Eve. A couple of days before, my mother lost one of the pearl stud earrings he had bought for her years before. That made the loss of my dad even more difficult. I have purchased 4 other pair of pearl studs since then to replace the ones that were lost. NOTHING compares at all to the ones I received today from Overstock.com. These are absolutely SUPER in every way. Order these without reservation. I cannot imagine that you would be anything less than 100% pleased and satisfied with your purchase. Thanks so much, Overstock.com.
I ordered these earrings to replace pearl studs I had for years. I was disappointed when they arrived, because they were very small and did not have any luster. They paled in comparison to the pair I wanted to replace. Ultimately, I returned them and had to pay for shipping and a restocking fee.
I bought these for the wife of a friend for her birthday. My wife has a love for pearl jewelry started by her Filipino step-mom who has given her various pieces with some of the pearls found by her own family members. My wife liked the earrings, saying they were simple, yet classy. Unfortunately, my friend's wife is not a big pearl fan (though her husband told me she would like them) and was not impressed.
I think these pearls are very pretty, but I feel the set I received looks more like 6 - 6.5mm, not 7 - 7.5mm pearls. My other comment is that the gold base is very small where the the post attaches to the pearl and I'm afraid these will come apart if you aren't very gentle with them. I just received mine and am overall pleased with the look and value.....I hope they don't come apart, but I have paid 4 times as much for a very similar look so I am sure I will get my money's worth!! Thanks to Overstock......At least I won't be sick if my cat steals one and takes it to never..be..found..land!!!! SMILE!!!
