I bought two pairs of these - the straight silver color and the gold and silver combination and I really like them. First of all (and very important to me) they are lightweight. I am just not someone who can tolerate heavy earrings. The pattern gives them a little bit of additional interest beyond being just a plain hoop earring. And if you lose one earring (which I do with alarming frequency), they are very affordable, so just go out and buy another pair or two. So, all in all, they are an attractive pair of lightweight hoop earrings at a good price.
