I just love wearing these. Makes me feel so feminine and up to date with my jewelry. Light weight and design is long enough I don't have to worry about them falling off all the time; however, it's a good idea to check infrequently to see if they are ok as depending on what I'm doing, they will work themselves down and have potential to fall off. I've noticed this when I am very busy or wear something that rubs against them only.
My new "go to" earrings! These make a simple, classic, elegant statement. Light as air- Yet substantial enough to really polish your look. They're long & slender, falling just short (~ 1/2" - 1" less) of chin length... Which evokes an overall tall & slender appearance! I selected the 18K gold coating- Thankfully, these earrings are treated to protect against tarnish (I no longer buy any other kind of earring!). I have a small face, slender neck, delicate features (I've been told my whole life), & am 5'5", slender, w/ mid-back hair length. I can't wear the giant / substantial earrings that look so great on other women- They overwhelm my small face. These successfully up the BLING factor- but in an understated, elegant way that connotes $$$ (wealth!)- w/o overwhelming us girls with smaller,more delicate face & body features. These earrings look VERY expensive. I purchased 2 pair initially, & I just now purchased another 3 pair- These are my new "life-long" earrings! One more plus" : No back post "stick", to stab your head/neck behind the ear, while you fall asleep with these on! They just lay flat. However- I don't recommend sleeping in them, you never know when ANY pierced earring might catch on a blanket & tear your earlobe, right? Oh I just can't get over how incredibly lightweight, rich, and BEAUTIFUL these are- TONS of holiday sparkle & style! I definitely took heed of other reviewer's comments about the ear wire coming out of piercing (because the earrings have no back-stop)- So, I added a pair of the tiny, clear, rubber earring stops (purchased @ Craft / fabric store-100 earring backs / $2.00; Or, can be purchased by the dozen @ Claire's earring store for a few $)- My own word of caution- YES- The ear wires ARE very delicate / easily bendable- So, I had to "work" the earring back holes, on a sturdier pair of earrings to enlarge the holes slightly (so that they'd slide on THESE earrings easily, w/o bending the earring back wire). These are new for me, & already I'm receiving compliments & "they're gorgeous! They look expensive!" comments :) Not sure if that's the earring alone, as I'm frequently complimented on all aspects of my being- that I look/ smell / wear / expensive everything. As you can see by the affordable cost of these earrings- That's just an illusion! These are a definite '"buy while you can get them!". Thx for reading, Happy Holidays 2013 to all!
The long backing is so long that it hits the back of your neck and work the earring out. They literally look like long skinny sticks and just didn't really work for me. I think had they been a bit thicker they would have been better. I expected them to be ticker than they were.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? slightly deceiving
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. the silver was hollow and thus was very easy to bend.
I purchased these earrings in silver since that is what I usually wear. The earrings were longer than the appearance on the website. ...but that is fine..earrings fall mid neck and the earring hang slightly at an angle framing the face. The picture is misleading... The stem is equal length to the earrings which is annoying because the stem is thick so the earring doesn't hang straight. When I bend my neck the earring pushes up...so I am constantly readjusting the earring. The earrings are well made. I am giving four stars because the issue I raise may only be particular to my preference.
