3.0 out of 5.0
I like the pink of the stones - they are very nice.
What ruins this piece? The EARRING BACKS. This has happened a COUNTLESS number of times with earrings I purchase on this website. The backs and clasps of the earrings on this site continuously malfunction. I lost a favorite pair this way. This is the most frustrating thing.
Be careful with the backs to these earrings - make sure they are secure.
Overall, great for the price. Just be careful with the backs.
