I love love love Ross-Simons.
What a great place - have been shopping with them over the decades, and they were amazingly helpful 25yrs ago for all my wedding stuff. However, these earrings I would not really recommend. They are very small and hard to put on. However, they are made well, albeit daintily, and are pretty.

Bottom Line: I would recommend this to a friend!
3.0 out of 5.0
Very pretty, thought metal hook a bit thin, and setting holding in stone also minimal.Â
