I've always thought that larger hoops or anything ornate overpowers my face. I received these beautiful earrings as a gift. They are lightweight and delicate and unusual. I like the way they gently "shimmy" when I move. You do have to be careful with the clasp--make sure it is securely in the small hole.

These earrings are gorgeous. I received them as a gift with the matching bracelet this Christmas. The gold colour is gorgeous and they tinkle beautifully in the ears, but unfortunately the wires are too short and become unclasped very easily. I wore them at Christmas and they fell off all the time. Unfortunately I can't recommend these earrings.
