These 1 ct. are good for daily wear as well as as for special occasions. Compared to the 1/2 ct, these shine better and more visible when hair is down; great for pixie cuts, too! Overall, this makes a simple statement.
As for the cons, the clasp closure isn't as secured as the 1/2 ct which has an extra "snap" when closed. The clasp of these 1 ct wiggles and doesn't align, but it is better than just a regular push back closure. Because it is a lightweight set of earrings, might want to be careful and/or check to see if earrings are still on and not somehow tangled in one's clothing, mask, or hair.
