The end of the post is thinner to help ensure ease in the post going through little ear holes. What I liked about these for my daughter is that she sees them as "special" now, but I know they are sophisticated enough for her to keep forever! (Or until she loses them, which if that is ever the case, at least we didn't overpay!) There is a bit of a silver base behind the gemstone so it sits off the ear a bit, giving it a little more visibility. Gemstone is very pretty in person.
I purchased these along with the matching necklace for my teen daughter and she is in love with them. I even ordered a second set of earrings. They are very very light in color, but well made and a nice sparkle.
