Should these earrings be inserted in the lobe from the back to the front? Is there a 'finished' side and a flat side?

I was very please with the errings, I like things that are different. Not something you see on everyone or in every store. That's why I love the Market place. The only problem that I foresee someone having is that to get the proper look you have to go from the back on the ear with the wire. Do it in front of a mirror and its not a problem. Very nice and not a heavy erring.Read More
they are beautiful, although a little too long for me. i will have to have them shortened.Read More
I ordered these for a gift, will order some more for me and giftsRead More
Beautiful earring! It would be really cool if the wire hooked under the dove's beak so that it was closed and locked - especially since they need to be inserted from back to front. Everything else is perfect!Read More
I WANTED SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR MY DAUGHTER FOR CHRISTMAS AND THESE FIT THE BILL PERFECTLY. I DIDN'T SEE THEM, BECAUSE I HAD THEM SENT DIRECTLY TO SD, BUT SHE SAYS SHE HATES TO TAKE THEM OFF, AND SHE HAS HAD NUMEROUS COMPLIMENTS ON THEM.Read More
They are pretty, but I am returning because the wire gauge is thicker so I find them uncomfortable, and they are a bit heavy so they pull the earlobes down a bit which also makes me very aware I have heavier earrings on. Also, I am afraid the wire would break one day because of bending it side to side in order to even get them on and off.Read More
These are very pretty but are a little to heavy for my ears and pull my lobe. Also, the shepards hook need to be adjusted so that the earing hangs straight. I though for the money the value was good but it was just not for me.Read More
These bird earrings (look more like a crane than a dove to me) are beautiful and unique. They have a nice solidness to them, without being too heavy. To wear them, you just pull the hook slightly away from the bird, and insert them as you usually would. The birds turn to the side slightly when you're wearing them, so they have a modified hoop-like appearance. I believe that these earrings deserve five stars or more. The shipping, however is another story. They didn't even ship out for 11 days --so much for the 7 to 10 day delivery goal!Read More
These are great - different and elegant!! Definately worth the purchase!Read More
Beautifully crafted earrings, unique an solid not flimsy earrings. Made a gift I had a hard time giving away but was very proud to give away.Read More
Questions & Answers
Hi clane318, these are designed to be facing backwards, IF you wanted to have the dove facing forward then yes you would put them in from back of your ear lobe, both sides are finished. Thanks for your interest, hope this helps!
That is the way I have worn them. They look better with the bird facing forward.
You can put them in either way depends on what side you want the tail on

How to Care for Amber Jewelry
Amber is an attractive but delicate ornament. Popular for its deep golden color and natural patterns, amber decorates both antique and modern jewelry, from beaded necklaces to rings and earrings. Handmade amber jewelry from places like Poland, Thailand and India lends an eclectic look to any outfit. This jewelry requires special care, as amber is soft and can be easily damaged by even mild chemicals. If exposed to sudden changes in temperature, amber can crack or even break. For these reasons, care should be taken to protect amber jewelry when wearing, cleaning and storing it. With proper care, your beautiful jewelry will last a lifetime.
