I saw these earrings on a Friday night and was thinking of purchasing them for a 14 year old who was graduating eighth grade. I wasn't sure if she would like them so I didn't purchase them. However, the next day I was shopping with my daughter and after telling her about the earrings, she thought they might be a welcome gift so I showed them to my daughter and I ended up buying them. I think they were a good choice! The earrings are cute, colorful and great for summer!
