HOOP: An earring that loops from the front of the ear to the back.
STERLING SILVER: Also known as "Standard Silver," sterling silver is silver alloyed with other metals to increase the hardness and durability. Generally, sterling is 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. Some sterling silver jewelry is plated with 14kt-18kt gold and referred to as "vermeil," or "gold over sterling."
POLISHED: A buffed-out finish used to produce a mirror-like shine.

While the price and the size of the hoops was nice, I Â felt that the colors of the stones was not that vivid. Â The earrings seemed dull in comparison to the picture on the website. Â

3.0 out of 5.0
Great for the price.
I like, however, the stones are not as vivid as I hoped they would be, they are a nice size. More attention should be paid to product evaluation, the snapbar on one earring ring was very loose I was able to adjust it, not worth the trouble of returing the product. Would recommend.
