I bought this set to wear to my husband's Air Force Ball. It was very simple and pretty. I too was disappointed the earrings were fish hooks and not lever-backs as pictured and described but I knew this in advance from another review. At least they provided the little stoppers to keep the earrings from just falling out. I made due and received many compliments on the set. This would be perfect for any special occassion such as a wedding, dance or a young lady who's not yet ready for expensive jewelry.
