Exceptional piece and really well made! Looks stunning, not too heavy and falls just right. I love mixing it with my other pieces. Very happy with my purchase!

I should have paid attention to all the reviews that said they were too heavy. They are! Too heavy! You'd need very sturdy earlobes to wear these.

I was very disappointed in these earrings as the clasp would not hold. I called to see if I could exchange and was told "that is how they were made."

Beautiful but Heavy

These are very pretty, but larger than I expected and very heavy. The description lists the mm size, but doesn't include a picture of someone wearing them (from now on, I'll only buy ones w/ a pic, as it's too hard to envision how X millimeters will look). I'm returning them.

Lovely, but extremely heavy. My earlobes hurt after less than an hour. Unfortunately, my husband did not keep the receipt so I wasn't able to return them.

I agree with some of the other reviewers. I received the necklace as a Xmas present (absolutely wonderful and very wearable). I decided to treat myself to the earrings as a birthday present. They are gorgeous but are heavy. I wear them a short time and then slip them off when they become too uncomfortable, i.e. I make my entrance wearing the entire set and then slip the earrings off as needed.

So pretty, but too heavy

These earrings look fabulous, but they need to be redesigned because they are just too heavy. As soon as you put them on the earrings are pulling uncomfortable on one's earlobes.

These are beautiful and a great medium size, but they were too heavy for me so I returned them.

Well crafted and true to the catalogue photograph, these earrings are much too heavy for me to wear. Sorry to let them go.
