Rated 3 out of 5 by JRipa Pretty,but heavy
I own these, very pretty, but after wearing a short time, my ears hurt due to the weight. I needed them to go with other pieces, but find I avoid them. A bit pricy also. I will no longer purchase shepard hook earrings as I worrie about loosing one at this price.

Beautiful earrings but drag down on the earlobe due to heaviness of earrings. I had to return.

My lifestyle, taste and peer group is not over the top. These earrings are not too too. Not too big or heavy. One notch up and it would be trying-too-hard. Perfect to wear out to lunch, or to a party. I love them. I would like the stem to hang a tad longer in the back, if that wouldn't make them heavy.
Rated 3 out of 5 by LOVES QUALITY HEAVY BUT GORGEOUS!
I ALMOST kept these gorgeous earrings. But if you have earlobes which stretch at the least amount of weight, these earrings are pretty heavy. Look at the silver and the length and the gemstones. All that is beautiful, but these are for the thick-lobed or the young who may still believe that heavy earrings won't eventually cause the earlobes to stretch. Yes, my earlobes stretched with these on and I even looked carefully at the length the hole was stretching trying to tell myself that the holes didn't look THAT bad. These, unfortunately, never made it out of the bathroom, but went back in the box for return. I have MANY, MANY Bixby items, and I NEEDED these to work, but they just didn't.
Rated 4 out of 5 by sranger Gorgeous, but . . .
For design, as with all of Barbara's pieces, these are stunning. Sadly, one of mine didn't hang correctly and had no movement. Surprisingly, the citrine shows up better than the garnets, which in the pair I received are a bit dark. That being said, I would not hesitate to purchase these. I've not had much luck with exchanges, so I will return these (the reason for only 4 stars) and will decide whether or not to reorder.
