These are beautiful earrings....however I was hoping for the more "orange" color that I was seeing on the screen of my computer (which I know can vary from the actual piece). As we typically associate "coral" color as an orange or peachy kind of reddish tone....I felt the earrings that arrived would be fine. Well...fortunately RED is my favorite color...as the particular pair of earrings I received is VERY dark red in color (and one earring is an even deeper red than the other...which can happen with natural corral ). There is hardly any orange-ish tone in these red earrings at all. While the color is a bit of a disappointment, the earrings themselves are nice....I would describe them best as "adequate"....but they are not a "quality" pair of earrings.. They do appear to have similar veining as is shown in the photo, and both earrings measure exactly 10mm as described. The post is gold, but not very thick, and with use I predict it may become increasingly fragile: so the buyer should be prepared to be gentle with the post when putting the earring on and taking it off. The earring backs are an EXTREMELY small and fragile butterfly clasps: to the point of being IMO useless for such a large earring.....and personally: I would not trust them alone to hold up this earring on the ear. My intention is to always wear a disk shaped plastic backing with a rubber gasket to grasp the post, and to prevent the earring from drooping forward when worn ( I do this when wearing all of my larger earrings, and it does work well ). ALSO: the post itself is only about 8mm long: which may be adequate for some earlobes, but it's a pretty close fit for my "fleshy" earlobe....and to wear the alternative backing is going to be a very close fit. All in all: the earrings are worth what I paid......but I will continue to seek a truly "coral" colored pair of earrings, with better quality posts and clasps. The packaging for shipping was adequate for this pair of earrings......and they arrived in a reasonable amount of time. Thank you, Overstocks for making this selection available.
I ordered the blue topaz earrings but was shipped yellow earrings. I love the design and get compliments, but I wanted the blue earrings and that is why I gave it only 3 stars.
These earrings are very pretty and I have received compliments both times I've worn them. I was expecting them to be a little bit longer and somewhat wider, but they do stand out and have a lovely understated shine to them. I have other blue sapphire earrings, however these have a totally unique look to the sapphire, which I was unsure about liking at first, but since wearing them, I do really appreciate now that they aren't going to be confused with any of my other earrings. I would recommend these to a friend or anyone who is looking for pretty blue sapphire earrings that will go with many outfits, from blue jeans to dress up.
