My 8 year old niece wanted "big girl" earrings, and her mother agreed she could have some small hoops. These are definitely for a child, but they were perfect for an 8 year old (probably any child 6-10). They are a small hoop, but the little dangling CZ adds to the length, the bling, and makes them more grown up looking. They are delicate but well made with a strong clasp. My niece loved them and her face and ears were glowing all Christmas Day:)

Its difficult to find tiny loops like these, anymore and this pair has the added little sparkle of the cz drop. Can wear for everyday or evening.
