Very pretty but concerned with "setting" of crystals
These are really pretty, but I am concerned with the prongs that supposedly hold the crystals. There are a couple that aren't even touching the crystal, which makes me believe they are glued. This makes me nervous, and for this price, I don't want to take the chance of losing a crystal.

Very pretty but HUGE
Let me start by saying that these are very pretty earrings. My husband bought these as an early wedding gift for me last year to go with my dress, which was incredibly sweet. He helped me choose them, then, had them gift packaged with a note for posterity. I don't know that I agree with other reviewers that they are worth the money or very good quality, but for costume jewelry, they look nice from a distance. We weren't expecting real, set stones (these were glued on, from the looks of them,) or real pearls, and if the metal looked more pewter and less antique silver, this wasn't a surprise. I was, however, surprised by how overwhelmingly large they looked on. I was expecting something smaller, more delicate, and they just looked like too much when placed with my necklace. This is not to say that they wouldn't be perfect for someone else's ensemble, but considering the quality and size, we sent them back.

Beautiful vintage-inspired earrings!
Perfect! My entire look is fairly understated and simple and didn't want a lot of bling on my wedding day but wanted at least one thing to shine and earrings it will be! As soon as I saw these online I fell in love and all the reviews were so positive, I had to get them! I received them today and they are just as pictures - glamorousbut not gaudy,shiny but not tacky, and the best part is that the lovely ivory pearls match perfectly with the pearl necklace that my late father had gifted to my mother on their wedding day 34 years ago! I really wanted to wear that necklace and had such a hard time finding earrings that went with it...these did just the trick! :)

These seemed like a splurge when I purchased them for my wedding, but I'm so glad I bought them. I had originally chosen a smaller pair because my style is understated, but bought these at the last minute. The crystals are high-quality and expensive looking. They stand out in pictures without looking tacky. Shipping was quick and they came in a beautiful box. Looking forward to wearing these again on special occasions and remembering my wedding when I do!
