The pictures of these earrings are beautiful, but deceptive. The mountings are huge and heavy making the earrings hang low. The studs do NOT want to sit squarely on the earlobe, but fall downward. The mountings are WAY too large/tall for the stones. I had to return them because they look terrible on.

One of the things I love about Amazon is the ability to read a review before you buy.

The reviews on these earrings are right on target. I'm so glad I bought them!

The cut, color, clarity, and shape of the stones are excellent. As illustrated the cuts are different for each pair, that's a nice touch. So far I have worn all but the Blue Topaz and I've received compliments on all of them.

My good friend playfully grabbed my earlobe when I wore the Citrine set and said, "Hmm, I thought you were on a budget...looks like that resolution didn't take." Hahahah, I am on a budget, if she only knew how much I paid for them. I actually bought these with my new allowance, best money ever spent.

She also thought they were platnium, I just smiled and shrugged my shoulders. One thing you might not catch from the pictures, these are nice sized stones. They are large and in charge and definitely going to get noticed.

This would make a great gift in part or whole. Better yet, buy them for yourself, it's the best deal you'll ever get on jewelry.

These earrings are beautiful. My only problem with them is that I am giving them as a gift and I was disappointed with the packaging. The earrings were shipped in plain unmarked boxes with no product description(sterling silver, genuine stone,ie). The description said that they would be shipped in a "Regal blue sueded cloth". Not the case. I am giving these to a teenager, I hope she doesn't think there cheap!

The stones in these earrings are stunning. Good cut and quality, lovely colors to go with your entire wardrobe. However, the settings are so large and stand out from my earlobe so far that you can't see the stones, just the silver setting. I'm sure it's a combination of the size of the earring and the shape of my ear, but I'm really disappointed that I don't wear these lovely little gems as much as I had intended. If you have larger earlobes perhaps these would be the perfect studs for you. But if you have smaller ears, beware.

Original Review: Five Stars

Usually when buying jewelry online, the product looks more glittering and larger that actual. Not the case here. The stones are great quality and sizeable. Each pair comes it a sharp looking black jewelry box. I gave the few as gifts and every recipient was happy! I particularly like the blue topaz.

Review Update: April 28th, 2012, Two Stars

I bought this product again and received it yesterday (April 27th, 2012). The product quality has gone down and it is now manufactured in China, as oppose to Canada where the first set that I purchased was made. I was very disappointed in this change of quality, as I was hoping to give these out as nice gifts for a trip abroad to Asia tomorrow. Now they are going back to Amazon. One thing I noticed from this experience and from another experience buying from Amazon is that when sorting by "popularity" which I often used, the most popular product with the most reviews aren't always the best. Some products seem to have been around for years and have garnered hundreds for good reviews, but perhaps to accommodate demand, the manufacturer moved the product manufacturing to a low cost country, significantly altering the quality of the product. I recommend reading and putting priority on the "latest, most current reviews", as oppose to old reviews, as product quality can change over the years. Perhaps this product became a victim of its own success.

When I purchased these earrings as a gift for my wife, I was very concerned about the negative reviews. Despite the majority of reviews being very positive, a few key negative reviews indicated how large the settings were and how much they might make a woman's earlobes "droop."

I can safely say they were completely off on this one. My wife is very thin and has delicate features. The earrings look amazing on her, and there is none of the problems pointed out in the negative reviews.

The quality of the gems is beautiful, as well. The colors match the images, and in many cases, the images actually don't do the gems justice. Some have complained about the garnet being too dark, but I found the garnets were a beautiful deep red. Actually lighter than in the photos.

If you are purchasing these earrings for someone over the age of 80, then maybe I would say buyer beware. Otherwise, please buy these as a gift for someone. They will love them

As I get older, I find that I prefer smaller earrings and sometimes, a stud is all I want to wear. I have wanted these earrings for a while but finally broke down and bought them earlier this month. I have to say that I am more than delighted by them. The silver settings are quite pretty. The color of the stones is vibrant.

A couple reviews indicated that they are too heavy so, when I ordered the earrings, I also ordered Earring Stabilizers. It was a good decision. When I first took a pair out of the box, I immediately noticed the weight. They are substantial. The earring stabilizer held the earring straight and did not let the weight of the earring make my earlobe droop. Nobody wants droopy earlobes.

I do not recommend considering these earrings for those second and third holes. They are simply too heavy for that.

The best thing about these earrings are that these are real gemstones. The shapes and colors are beautiful. The size is big for stud earrings, between 5mm-8mm depending on cut (about 1 carat diamond size). They are nicely cut, and sparkle in your ears. As others commented, the setting is high so they are best viewed from the front. If you have really tiny and thin earlobes then these will be too big and may droop a little. If you're going for the delicate look, then these will probably not meet your expectations with the high setting and the bigger size. I think they're not very suitable for tweens but may be ok for an older teenager.

They come in a long satin blue box which has individual boxes inside so you can gift these away to 5 different people if you like.

Over the years, I had gotten away from wearing earrings in the second piercing of my double-pierced ears. But now, I wear a pair of these almost every day, with dangly ones in the first piercing. (My dad asked me when I got my ears double-pierced. The answer: 24 years ago! LOL!)

The stones are a nice size, and the settings make the earrings interesting without being complicated. I don't think they sit out too far from the ear; in fact, the settings allow lots of light to sparkle through the stones.

Every stone is beautiful and crystal clear. Even the garnets are red and clear, with little or no brown in them.

I'm very pleased with the earrings in this set and highly recommend them, especially for a buyer (or "giftee") with double-pierced ears.

They are very solidly made. A few of the backs were slightly bent, but I was able to straighten them. They are just much larger than I anticipated.
