Great size...as someone else mentioned -not too large yet a substantial size. Like the 2-toned look and these do the job perfectly. I like the diamond cut silver part instead of having stones (such as cz's or diamonds) because sometimes the stones fall out even in the best made earrings. These give the look of sparkle and shine with just the 2 different metal colors. Hope to find them here in other sizes as well...would love a larger size hoop too. They are light enough that they do not pull your ear lobe down, yet do have some weight to them. I would not hesitate to say "buy them" you will not be sorry. They look great!
