I seem to be having a hard time getting these with a nice spring action. I'll be sending these back along with some gun metal colored ones I ordered. I will be keeping the antique silver I ordered, they appear to be sturdier than the other two colors.
This item is exactly what I wanted and what I got
These are my go to earring for most of the earrings I make. They do not tarnish and are well made.
I do not work with gold often, but did order these earrings for a specific design.. The color is a bright gold with a smooth finish. They are sturdy and do stay closed until you are ready to remove them. You will be able to create many beautiful earrings with this lever-back earring.
