Nice, Basic Gold... Low Quality Overall
on May 12, 2007
I bought these for one simple reason: they were basic gold earrings that I could wear every day. Nothing fancy, nothing too big. While the earrings themselves are nicely colored and have an even shape, the post and backing leave a lot to be desired. They do not "catch" - the connection is loose and unreliable. The post and backing have come apart often. I do not wear them to bed (although I have many earrings where that isn't a problem) and I do not pull on them or put them under any stress. They just aren't made very well. My solution, if you experience this and if returning them is not an option for you, is to go out and buy a package of gold backing from a jewelry or accessories store. Those seem to work out OK.
