I got these for a third of the retail price, and that makes it worth it. If I had paid full price, I would be left a little underwhelmed. The details are nice, and the earrings are shiny. I bought them for my 5 year old daughter, and they're beautiful on her little ears. The rods are pretty thin, so I would think it's for smaller children. Overall, it's worth it if you get them on sale.
