I love these earrings and I would buy them again if I lost my current pair, however, you can't use cream silver polish or jeweler's cloth because the cleaning distorts shape of the earrings, especially when there is a lot of tarnish so more rubbing is needed. I haven't tried liquid polish yet, but I can't put much pressure on the earrings with a sponge or cloth. It is best to keep tarnish away with tarnish-resistant paper so you don't have to clean them so much.
I bought these earrings to replace a set from another retailer that I kept losing, since it was getting too expensive to replace them through the actual retailer every time. I have a matching necklace and bracelet for the aforementioned set, as well, so the earrings really needed to be *exact* to make the set accurate. The original earrings I'd purchased from the other retailer said 10mm, so I ordered these in the 10mm (obvious choice). Upon arrival, though, it seems there's quite a bit of difference between the 10mm from each retailer. These earrings look/feel a bit larger than 10mm. They're also more of a white silver than my original sterling silver set, if that makes sense? A lighter silver than I'd expect for sterling, I guess. They're very lightweight, I've had no problems with the backs, no issues with them whatsoever, and they're definitely priced better for all the replacements I end up getting than a certain blue-box jeweler. They're great - just not exactly what I was looking for.
...Yes, please! And these don't disappoint. They're just as charming in person as this photo shows them to be. Only difference is that I thought their eyes would be flat, but they're pointed in that mini-jewel shape, which I guess is what "marcasite" usually looks like in jewelry. And the craftsmanship is fantastic. Plus they appear to be real silver rather than silver "dipped," like some less expensive silver studs seem to be. Try them; I don't think you'll be disappointed.
