These are VERY nice earrings at this price point....and they are an excellent value for the money. They have a very nice luster...and are very nice looking. IMO: this is not a pearl that is going to fall off of the mounting easily; a large part of the pearl is sitting on a concave circular mounting which has a lot of surface contact, and I suspect the pearl may be glued down nicely, and there may also be an internal post on this pearl as well, given its size. The Omega backing (also rare at this price) with post is well tensioned to provide for the earring to be very comfortable when worn. The earring is gently held in place and sets well on the ear, without excessive forward drooping, no risk of losing a backing, and the earring can be removed from the ear WITHOUT causing the pearl to require much potentially damaging traction when being removed. Win/win!!! .....//.....The pearls have a nice luster, and while there is one very, very miniscule flaw on one of mine, as well as a tiny scratch: I believe this is totally imperceptible to anyone when worn. The sizing of this earring is perfect for a nice "presence" when worn....which I appreciate because as I age, and I do prefer a size that is much larger than the more demure pearls I wore in my youth. One of my earrings measures 11mm diameter....and the other 12mm in diameter (a very minor difference which is noticeable to a very sharp eye in the box....but would be imperceptible to anyone when worn). These earrings are very versatile and are perfect for casual wear, business attire, or more "dressy" occasions. .....//.....The earrings arrived well packaged for shipping, and the box that contains them was considerately designed.....with intent to provide for the good appearance and longevity of these earrings over time. The box has a top flap that folds flat when open, with an internal "stand" that provides for the earrings to be separated and protected from damage when stored. When closed, the front of the flap of the box is secured with a magnet. Frankly, I've rarely seen such a well-designed box even for earrings that are much more expensive than these!!! HEADS UP, COMPETING MANUFACTURERS!!! .....//.....I am surprised and pleased with these earrings....and they are pretty enough and such a good value, that I am considering buying another pair or two. I purchased the "gray" color.....which I would describe as a light to medium silvery tone (definitely not a dark or blackish grey)....and they go very well with my skin tone and eye color. At this time there are two other colors available: classic white, and a very soft pink. As pearls look best on a woman when they enhance a woman's skin tone, I would love to see these pearls also become available in a slightly off-white/more creamy shade..... a pale peach tone...a soft greenish tone...and a deeper gray and/or blackish tone. HEADS UP, MANUFACTURERS!!! YOUR MARKET IS CALLING....AND WOMEN ARE GOING TO LOVE THESE EARRINGS!!!! PLEASE MAKE MORE COLORS AVAILABLE!!! .....//.....Thanks again, "Overstocks".....for making a quality product available to consumers at great price.
After so many poor reviews on the size and weight of these earrings, it's ridiculous that a photo of the earrings on a woman is not shown. Who needs to see three pictures of the designer/crafter and not one to show how the item looks on a person? No one, who has read the reviews will want to order them, only to have to return them because they didn't like the way they looked on themselves...too big... too heavy...???
I really love these earrings. They were a little bigger than I expected them to be when I ordered, but I absolutely love them. The pearls are good quality and the design is elegant. I like the mix of white and black pearls.
