These earrings are GORGEOUS! Exactly as pictured and described so if this is the look you want then these are definitely a buy. Posts are 10mm but the "fit" seems a bit longer (measured 5 times) and fits well on my chubby lobes; could even add a drop and would allow for some movement. Artbeads CLUTCH-04 is a perfect fit and stabilizes for those with a larger piercing. Read the other review stating "that the crystals are set in a flat (matt) silver background, so the earrings are very pretty but not a solid crystal shimmer as the photo makes them appear." Yes, all true BUT the crystals are set very closely and if you can see the background when being worn you have perfect eyesight. Do hope that none of the crystals fall out as other products in this line have noted in reviews.
I would rate these more under the 'fun' category than 'elegant'. What is not clear from the photo is that the crystals are set in a flat (matt) silver background, so the earrings are very pretty but not a solid crystal shimmer as the photo makes them appear. (I personally think they look like a disco ball.) Still very nice though, and well made. Each earring is sold individually, and earring backs are not included, so this is not a cheap earring post option.
