I bought these earrings about one year ago. I was initially very pleased with the shape, color, and size. However, a few months later the back fell off of one of the earrings. I contacted overstock and they sent me a replacement pair free of charge - (although I did have to pay shipping to return the broken earrings). A few months later, same problem, the back fell off of one of the pearls making them totally unwearable. Again overstock sent me a replacement pair. This past weekend the back fell off AGAIN but this time I didn't notice until I had already lost the earring, so I guess no replacement pair this time...

You get what you pay for with these earrings - they aren't very lusterous and their surface contains a few pits and imperfections but the gray color goes with so much of my clothing this season that I know I'll get quite a bit of wear out them anyway and won't be heartbroken if something happens to them along the way.
The pearls are ok....not the greatest and I did have to return a pair....before I got an pair that was acceptable. . My biggest complaint is that each earring looks different and doesn't look like much effort went into making them a pair. One was more like a button shape while the other was flatter. Not bad though for the $$$.
These match the pearl necklace I have just fine but are NOT the deep rich darker south sea pearl grey that you might think they are supposed to be. They are nothing spectacular but are worth the money but no more. They did arrive very, very fast though so I have to give 5 stars for shipping....but not for the earrings.....They're just average....They are just barely 9.5 mm according to my brass mm gauge. I agree also that the posts could be sturdier and longer.
These earings are huge. I just received them and they have beautiful luster. One earing is slightly bigger than the other but it is not at all noticeable when being worn. My one complaint is that the posts look very thin and delicate and I am a bit worried they might loosen or break over time. I think an earing this big might need a stronger post.
