I was concerned that they might be too heavy, but they are light and comfortable and the gem-stones are really very pretty. They will go with so many other pieces I already have and was so pleased to see the quality was what I expected. My daughter saw them and commented, "I will be borrowing those!".
My cousin let me know she wanted gold earrings and her favorite colors were green and purple. I couldn't afford solid gold, but these were extremely affordable. I never got to see the earrings in person, but she told me she loved them and they were exactly what she wanted. I guess that is success.
