Top critical review
on January 8, 2015
These stones are certainly adequately large. The color of the stones is very dark, however - it reminds me of dried or frozen blood drops. This might appeal to some, but I prefer the garnets that are lighter in color. With a January birthdate, it's hard to find garnets that aren't very dark, even though technically there are multiple garnet types. If that's what you're looking for, keep looking.
Also, the posts of the earrings are very long and the backs that secure them are very loose. The posts make holding a phone to my ear painful, and the backs leave me worried all day that my earrings are going to fall out.
All in all, for the price, not a bad buy. But I'm still considering returning them.
Edit: Returned these and got the 1 ct studs which were much better. I love them!
