The Color of these earrings is a darker than I expected. The only other problem was the earring backs that came with the earrings were so small that I had to use bigger ones from different earrings to keep the earrings from tipping forward on my ear lobes because of the weight of the earrings. I have found this to be a problem with other earrings ordered from Ross-Simmons-however I liked these earrings and they are a good value and look great on.

Bottom Line: I would recommend this to a friend!
2.0 out of 5.0
the earrings are very pretty but they don't sit on the ear lobe well--they sag and therefore detract from their beauty. I think that the back needs to be a heavier grade--it is very thin.
