I had the same experience as the other reviewer with smaller Swarovsky half-drilled pearls. I purchased these posts to mount 4mm pearls and they did not reach the peg. Because these posts did not fit the smaller pearls I purchased them for, I used them to mount some 8mm half-drilled Swarovsky pearls as well as some half-drilled 7mm freshwater pearls. They bring a dainty look to the larger pearls and the gold fill does not trigger my sensitivity. A good product but I knocked off a star for not fitting the smaller pearls.
Trialing the Post Earrings with 3mm Swarovski 5818s
I tried using these "cup + peg" post earrings as settings for 3mm Swarovski half-drilled crystal pearls. In each trial, the rim of the cup didn't hug the crystal pearl as well as I'd hoped (even after the peg was trimmed to allow the crystal pearl to sit as deeply as it could in the cup). That said, each earring had a sturdy post and a brilliant finish.
