I gave these to my 30 something daughter for Christmas. They look great on her. She is a conservative dresser and can only wear 14k gold. They are the perfect size for her and do not bother her ears. I purchased these from O because of bad experience with the larger online retailers sellers. I purchased myself and granddaughter 14k gold earrings online and we could NOT wear them. Unfortunately even when the sellers says they are 14k, they may not be or there is an inferior metal added to keep the price down. That is why I will continue to purchase from O.
I ordered these with the citrine stone. I was looking for an orange stone and had ordered a couple sets from other sellers, but when they arrived they were not at all like their picture, they were completely yellow rather than orange. When I received these, they were the perfect orange color. The setting and clasp are great. Very stunning.
I was lucky enough to encounter a great sale on these while I was contemplating purchasing these............AND a couple pairs of the same earrings in different colors. I ended up picking up this pair (Sapphire/blue), and two other colors (Ruby and Emerald). .....//.....I am absolutely delighted with these little earrings: I love the stylish "minimalism" of "bar" earrings...and the length of these is very flattering (not too long as to look garish for casual wear....not so short as to not be noticed). The link that connects the top of the "bars" to the "fish hook" back provides just the right amount of playful movement....which I adore in earrings!! The gold overlay is acceptable in this price range....particularly when considering these are hand-crafted. Each of the "stones" are faceted in fairly long shards....which provides a subtly appropriate accent for the earrings. .....//.....The "emerald"/green colored pair are quite translucent, and the effect of lighting on them is lovely. The "Sapphire" (deep royal blue)....and the "Ruby" (which to my eye appears more like a "reddish plum" color) are much more opaque/denser than the green pair.....but lovely in their opacity. .....//.....I wear these quite often (in my rotation of earrings) and have been very pleased with them. The uniqueness of these earrings is quite attractive...and I've received many compliments about them. .....//.....The only "issues" I've had with them are actually "non-issues" to me. The "Emerald" pair has the very slightest chip in the faceting of one of the upper corners. It is VERY small....and NOBODY would ever notice it but me; and because the minor defect is on the back of the earring, it is totally imperceptible from the front and does not detract from the overall appearance of the earring. Another VERY minor issue is regarding the lovely little white leatherette drawstring bags/pouches that each pair was packed in. When the people who packed the earrings into the mailing envelope, they folded the printed side of the packing slip around the white pouches....alas: my cute little white pouches all have the black lettering imprint on them that transferred from the packing slip. Darn....but no "biggie".....and hopefully they will consider this in the future when packing more of these pouches for mailing. .....//.....All in all: five stars from me on all three pairs........and the next time there is a sale on Overstocks on these: I'm going to have to see if I might like to pick up some other colors as well. :-)
