Earrings are a gift for my wife. She had a similar set I gave her years ago and she lost one. Becuase earrings are so easy to be lost, I was not wanting to purchase an extravagant pair. I priced options from $150 to $300 at jewelry stores. This pair looks great. She can wear and enjoy without worrying and feeling guilty if one is lost. This will be a nice surpirse at Christmas. I read reviwes before purchasing and it appears Overstock is listening. The earrings came in a reasonable box that I have no problems in using when I give to my wife. I saw earlier remarks about the packaging - but they fixed it.
