I was excited to try these earrings. Always wanted this style but never ventured to buy a pair. The box design is elegant and simple. the earrings have a lovely look and the shine is amazing. I have had these for a week and this is how it went: the earring stick is super long for me. I do not take the earrings off at night and the stick bother me a bit, just at night not during the day. I also took all my showers with these on. the sterling silver was not ruined by water but the shine was a bit off. also, on the seven of having them on, the back sticks were a little bended, i guess it too long for my ear. Overall I like this piece of jewelry and will definitively buy it and gift it. really happy with this item and definitively will recommend.
