Purchased these beautiful earrings for my adult daughter as a Christmas gift. Upon arrival I noticed that the backs did not fit snuggly. First earring was lost within the week. Re-purchased a pair of the identical earrings because I wanted a match for the remaining earring and single earrings were not sold by RS. Again the backs were not secure, but my daughter was extremely careful when she wore them. The second earring was lost 1 month later. Brought the remaining 2 earrings to a local jeweler who replaced the backs with new ones that fit much more securely.

post is small and back is flimsy
The posts are small and the backs are flimsy. Should be better quality for the price.

Beautiful, But Fell Apart
Man, was I ever excited when I ordered these for myself as a b-day gift. And when they arrived, the excitement continued. VERY lovely and a nice size, but not too big.
I've worn them probably 15 - 20 times since I received them in February. But the last time I went to take them off, the pearl disengaged from the post. Luckily, the pearl came off when I was handling the earring so I could catch it rather than lose it all together. But now I either need to return the earring or go and have them repaired.
Such a disappointment.
