These earrings are a perfect match to a necklace I bought last year. I like the design, they are a nice size (not overpowering), very sweet and dainty. HOWEVER, the minute I tried to put the back on the post, I bent the post, and I'm not superwoman! The gold is very bendy and the post will snap off soon. I'm going to keep the earrings - it's not worth the shipping to send them back. I will wear them until they break (it won't be long). The backs are quite terrible too - they are difficult to get on with the earrings in your ears. I'll keep looking for a longer-lasting flower earring.
