i love these so much! they look so cool and don’t bother my ears too much. there is a little redness for me once i finish putting it on because my ears are very very sensitive, but it should be no problem for most people. not uncomfortable once you have it on. my one complaint though is that the clasp can be hard to open and close at first, but it gets much better after a few uses. the ear cuff part can be shaped to fit your ear well of course. also note before you buy (not a downside, but just a note in case you may not realize), the listing is for one (1) of these earrings. if you want two (like i did) you will have to bump up the quantity. overall a really wonderful purchase!
