I received these earrings as a Christmas gift and I love them. I get lots of compliments on them, so I bought a pair for my sister in law who loves them too. They are the perfect size and in real life they look just like the picture. They are made of good quality sterling silver and I hope to wear them for a long time. One thing I would suggest is to get backings for the wires as they tend to slip out when changing clothes. Otherwise they are perfect. I am Irish and love anything Celtic. If you decide to buy these earrings, you will not be disappointed. Great value.
