These are a sturdy pair of earrings, and I love that the post is in the center. Makes them look much nicer and they stay in place a lot better. Very strong posts, for as small as they are, and they are attached securely. The size is perfect. Large enough to show the detail but still look very petite on your ear lobe. Adding stones to only half of the loop was a perfect touch. The prongs holding the stones in are smooth and rounded. They do not snag my hair. Love the look.
