Rated 2 out of 5 by cjlaw Beauty but defective workmanship
Shepherd's hook is not soldered well and broke in my hand after three months and little wear. Well soldered metal does not break. Solution offered by designer unacceptable-paying $65 on top of the price paid for earrings. QVC allowed return and refund. Otherwise these earrings are Killer re breauty.

LOVE these earrings! They are well made, sturdy, intelligently designed, comfortable, versatile, and beautiful. The pearls are lustrous and a nice size, and the colored gemstones add a glistening pop of color. The fact that you can add/remove the charms makes them adaptable to mood/outfit. (To open, hold the left side of the ring with the left hand fingers, and pull open the right side of the ring with your right hand fingers.) They are comfortable in the ear. If you have problems with weight in some earrings - but really love these - you could even remove a charm or two to lessen the weight. To me, the earrings have a nice weight to them - not heavy, and the movement adds interest and delight, also making them hang well. I wondered if the turning of the charms to the backside would bother me, but there is still the bird shape on the back and the shine of the gemstone setting, so it really has not been an issue for me. The sparrow is a meaningful symbol/totem - small in size, but determined and brave. Birds represent freedom, visits from our loved ones who have passed, and forward flight toward enlightenment/heaven. So very pleased with this wonderful creation!
