I ordered this about 4 months ago. Upon receiving them, they were not attached to the holder, and one was broken in two. I sent them back ordered another pair. I got those and those came as they should be. Attached to the holder and not broken. I wore them up town one day, got lots of compliments. However, I was driving home and I felt something hit my shoulder, and one of the earrings broke and fell down between the seats. Found it, manage to fix it but it was different than the other one. The next time I went up town, I wore them again, this time I came home with just one earring. The other one broke somewhere up town and don't know where. So I have only 1 now. Since I love them so much I ordered a 3rd pair. So far so good. The one I have left, I m attached it to a chain and have a necklace to match. They are beautiful, I love the way they hang, but beware.
