These earrings were my first Overstock purchase back in May. A friend of mine has them and recommended them to me. I love silver - and I love dangly earrings, but I can't wear them if they're the least bit heavy. These are large enough to get noticed but light enough to wear every day. They've become my new favorite earrings, they go with everything. I haven't found that they are prone to falling out as other reviewers have stated. I did pinch the hooks together just a touch when I first got them and I've never had a problem with them falling out at all - and I wear these a lot! If you buy these - for yourself or as a gift - you won't be sorry.
