For sixteen dollars and change, I did not expect these earrings to be breathtaking. I was just hoping for a nice pair of little stud earrings for my sister. I found them to be very dull and lacking the detail that appears in the picture. The "diamond" (again, I did not really expect much from it) looked more like an opal it was so cloudy. Even for the price, I did not thing they were a good value.
