Bottom Line: I would recommend this to a friend!
1.0 out of 5.0
Earrings too heavy.
The earrings are way too heavy for my ears & they tear the pierced part in my ear lobes from their weight. While I have made many recommendations to my friends to purchase jewelry or other items from Ross Simons, this product is not good. I keep looking for black and white earrings, and I thought these would be perfect to go with a necklace I bought from Ross Simons a few years ago, but all of the black and white earrings I have found at Ross Simons are either too heavy or once I have purchased them, they break after being worn only 1 or 2 times.
