Very fine-looking replicas... order these without hesitation at Amazon's great price. I initially ordered smaller versions of these, after reviewers commented these were "larger than advertised" or that they looked "too big to appear real". I disagree with those assessments... these appear to be about 1 CT per ear, as touted in the description, and the nice setting is very convincing that valuable stones are set inside. As far as looking too big to be real. well, I think that largely depends on the other jewelry you are wearing with these earrings. If you are married and your engagement stone is less than 1 CT, I think it seems unlikely you would have bigger rocks in your ears than on your finger. So maybe then these appear to be a stretch. (That is my logic, anyway... ) However if you have a large stone on your hand (or maybe NO hand bling at all?), then fire away! These look real to me. Enjoy them and don't over-analyze the $20 purchase for some fun faux ice.
