Rated 4 out of 5 by Gabby Hayes Lost One Earring
I purchased the earrings and matching ring last Spring. I noticed that the earrings would come off sometimes without me noticing they were loosening. Well, sure enough I chose to wear them with a navy outfit to start my vacation two weeks ago. While I was still in the airport after we had landed, I noticed one earring was missing. I retraced my steps as best I could, to no avail. When I logged on-line today, to contact QVC, I noticed the recent reviews that noted a problem with balance and heaviness of the design. I'd like to know if QVC has rectified the problem with the designer; and whether I may purchase a replacement for the one I lost; or lastly, if the problem has been fixed, if QVC will replace the set? Before this happened, I was hoping to order the matching bracelet. Please respond to my concerns. I truly love this set and would love to see the problem resolved satisfactorily. If that is the case, then my recommendation would be YES and I would purchase the matching bracelet. Gabby Hayes

These hoops are beautiful, but very heavy and unbalanced with the length of the post and size of the back. QVC and Barbara Bixby should pull these from QVC and fix the back problem before more people waste their time and money.

I own these gorgeous earrings and have also experienced trouble with the post and earring back. The problem with these earrings, is that the post is not long enough! Once you put the post through the earlobe, there's not enough space to anchor the earring securely on the ear with the tiny back! I'm going to try my "happy back" posts from Honora to see if that makes a difference! I hate to send these back because they're stunning but I can't afford to lose an earring either.
Rated 3 out of 5 by bookguru Too heavy
These earrings are stunningly beautiful. I have quite a few blue lapis pieces they would work well with, both gold and silver. But alas, the earrings are very heavy for small hoops, and they fall right out of the backing. Reluctantly, I have to return.

These earrings are beautiful but i found them too heavy and not supported properly by the backing. Hated to return them as i also have the matching bracleet which is gorgeous!
Rated 2 out of 5 by zebakaneba VERY PRETTY BUT NOT SECURE
These earrings are beautiful and I do wish they would have worked for me. I found the earring back provided to be way too slippery on the post. It would be a matter of minutes before one or both earrings would be lost. Rather than fiddle with finding alternative earring backs that may work, I am returning them. At this price point I expect the best quality which includes a secure earring back.
