I absolutely adored this pair of earrings and they brought me many compliments, until I dropped one earring causing the onyx to shatter. :( Don't think there is any way of fixing them, so my only choice would be to buy another pair. Be careful when handling! It was my fault for dropping them, but I guess I would have expected them to withstand one fall. Something else you may want to consider: if you're a brunette like me, the onyx gets a bit lost against the backdrop of dark hair if you like wearing your hair down. These may look more flattering if you have lighter hair, or like wearing your hair up! Also like other reviewers mentioned, the part that sticks in your ear is a little large. It didn't bother me at all, but it is worth considering if you think your piercing is small. Conclusion: if you like them buy them, they are very pretty, just take care not to drop them!
