Rated 5 out of 5 by kriswithak I like these
I read reviews and almost did not order these, but I did ! I really like these. They are just the right size. Not to small at all. I really like them.

I had never purchased steel jewelry before but thought I would try this necklace because I tend to like smaller pieces. It is cute and has a bit of a sparkle but not as much as I had hoped for or as it appeared on TV. I will keep it though and possibly give it as a gift to my daughter.
Rated 5 out of 5 by jazzi Super cute!
I prefer a smaller, more unique style of earrings and these are it! They are also lightweight
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ky_Buttercup101 Byzantine 14K Gold Earrings
These earrings are so perfect. Exactly what I wanted. I can only wear gold but the dangle is so classy. I do not wear large earrings very well either so these are perfect and the price was excellent. They just can't be beat.
Rated 3 out of 5 by bevie2 not what I imagined
These earrings are good quality, however, they are too small. They did appear larger on television but when I received them I was not happy.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Washington Mom Great 'everyday' gold earring
I love QVC and have ordered a large number of items. I purchased these on clearance, and I really like them. They are basic and light and go with everything - gold is the new black and I am wearing gold more and more - they go very nicely with any of my gold necklace pieces. I wear these for a more informal type of dressing, as I usually wear my hair back - but they could easily be dressed up as well - but they are on the smaller side. I have no complaints. I have purchased the little rubber backs in a package from a craft store and put them on all my earrings - and they work great with these as well. I would recommend as a cute and classy everyday piece of jewelry.

I completely agree with everything "essenefem" wrote. Said it all. I am very happy with these byzantine earrings and at the clearance price, I don't know what else one could want. I have a pair of the byzantine hoops and I like these for an updated change. Don't understand the negative reviews.
Rated 5 out of 5 by essenefem VERY NICE 14K Earrings At Clearance Price
First, I have to say I am mystified by the last two hyper critical reviews. My earrings are nicely polished---both on the outside and on the inside of the ovals. I have no ugly looking crevices on my earrings. As for the reviewer who mentioned a white look to the solder attaching the gold oval to the small loop for the shepherd's hook: That is absolutely not visible with the naked eye. When I read that statement, I went to get my 10x magnifying glass. That showed a very faint whiteness on only one of my two earrings. The statement that someone could see how cheap they look two feet away: I respectfully state that is absurd. These earrings are an excellent value at the clearance price. I don't know when the last time was that some of these reviewers shopped for 14K earrings (NOT PLATED), but every time I look at jewelry stores, the prices are above $100 for really cheap, unimaginative designs. That's another plus for these earrings: Every pair of Byzantine earrings I see are always wide hoops with snap-bar closures. "Same Old Same Old." These are updated, and have nice eye catching movement. Lastly, they look awesome with the 14K Byzantine Cross Pendant I purchased not too long ago from QVC. Conclusion: These are well-made, an updated design and a very good value at the clearance price.
Rated 2 out of 5 by waytoshop poor workmanship not worth the extra gold
Pro: this earring has more weight than the typical earrings these days without be too heavy. This gives them nice movement. The tubing for the byzantine IS hollow - this is a pro b/c it gives a bigger look without extra weight.
Cons: Just poor quality. I know the tubing is hollow b/c I could see broken links. The soldering of the earring at the top is pretty rough and doesn't look continuous. This is exaggerated secondary to the soldering the seems to be a little off in color and appears more white compared to the rest of the earring. Lastly, I would say that although some of the surfaces are polished, the "crevices" are not polished. Although this is described as being made by artisans, these are very rudimentary and would not be sold in any high end store.
In summary, this was a real disappointment. I was expecting something beautiful and luxurious and quality from the presentation. I would be afraid if someone complimented them and wanted to look more closely b/c they look, well, cheap within 2 feet. Will be returning these tomorrow.

I have a collection of Byzantine jewelry and was excited to find these. Upon receiving, I was quite surprised by the tiny size and insignificant presence. I have been buying 14kt from QVC for the past 20 years and these are not up the the usual standard. They are not worth the clearance price. Will be returning.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynn 10 Nice earrings
Very pretty on. I like the way they set on the ear. Comfortable to wear. Can be casual or dressy. A unusual but great look in a byzantine earring.
