This was rather a shock because the earring look nothing like the photo. That explains my disappointment. They all right, but not what I expected. Reviews are very important. I have finally caught on to that and no reviews were shown with these earrings when I got them My mistake, it seems. I have been so pleased by other purchases I made recently from Overstock, that this was a surprise in not being exactly what I had wanted to get.
These are very pretty earrings. From the reviews and the photos, I had the sense the backs were different than they are. People kept commenting on the fact that there was an added plastic back to hold them on. I generally don't wear earrings that are just a wire through one's ear, because they generally don't hold up well, get tangled in my hair, or fall out. All the little plastic thing does is keep them from coming out of your ear, but they're essentially just the wire through the ear. The front of the earring is pretty, though, so for that reason, I give it a good rating, but I wouldn't recommend it to a friend due to the back part, which is just a personal thing, so it may not bother others.
Can't say much more about them than has already been said in the reviews. I think they look a little summery but seem to pick up any color I am wearing. I depend on reviews before buying an item- I can tell you that these are very nice.
