These little huggie hoops are adorable! The size IS small, and some may find them too insignificant, so pay close attention to the measurements---they are accurate---and you will know exactly what you are getting. For me, they are EXACTLY what I was looking for...I have a small face and wanted something with great sparkle that I could wear everyday and that offered more interest than a basic stud. It was a bonus that this set features 10 tiny stones--perfect as a belated 10yr anniversary gift from my husband :-)
