Rated 1 out of 5 by from One of the earring's broke on the first day I bought this as a christmas gift for my mother and the first day she wore them, one of the earrings broke! She was taking the earring out and it just snapped. I've never seen anything like it! The remaining earring seems to be fine so we wonder if it was just a fluke. Very strange!
