I would like to take back my previous positive review.
Yes, these earrings are cute.
SOMETHING TERRIBLE HAPPENED.
When I was removing the earrings at the end of the day, one earring came out fine. The other snapped off in the front. The backing did not slide off and somehow got stuck. So now I have one perfectly good earring and one earring with the head detached from the post and the backing stuck on the post.
I got these in silver and I love them!
I initially didn't think I'd like them that much; I just needed a pair of simpler, more elegant earrings, but I'm not into plain silver/gold studs, fake pearls, or hearts/butterflies/flowers.
They're really pretty! The crystal inside the caging is loose, so sometimes it rattles around, which is fun. The stud is quite long, which I like, and it's a good solid thickness. Not too thick, but not so thin I worry about my piercing shrinking.
