Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING!!! Unique, Comfortable and GORGEOUS art!!! These are my favorites of all earrings in my collection. Yes, they are pricey, but the craftsmanship, the gemstone quality, the materials used and the spectacular design help us to understand the cost. The deep color-saturated chrome diopside sparkles with glistening elegance, the beautifully carved amethyst complements perfectly, and the graceful flow of design all add to the magic. (My only recommendation would be to be sure to wear the earring stoppers on the wires for extra security.) For those of us who love the gentle, friendly grasshopper, these are a must have. They remind us of the delicate balance of nature and, perhaps, the passion to leap forward and do good when the moment presents itself. These are a real treasure. 11-10-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Signature Earrings I own and love the Leap of Faith grasshopper charm, enhancer, and ring, but these earrings have become my go to signature earrings. They don't scream critter and coordinate well with black rhodium and multi gemstone and black spinel pieces making it unnecessary to purchase matching earrings for those jewelry pieces. They are flattering, mysterious, and rock a cool vibe as easily as a conservative one. While many people show a quiet faith by wearing a cross, these earrings invite a testimony of faith that braves new worlds. 10-09-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very striking earrings I considered giving these four stars instead of five for one reason only - the hooks are very thick and almost painful to get into my ears. They are also very short, so you need to have something at the back to keep from losing them, although as thick as they are might be unlikely to fall out. They are beautiful and I love the shimmer they have that makes them virtually glow. I have the grasshopper enhancer as well, and while I love it, I really wish the green had the same shimmer and glow as do the earrings. 06-06-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Larger & MORE BEAUTIFUL Wanted these for a long time and am so happy with them. They are really art pieces! I love BB jewelry and have had the grasshopper enhancer for a couple of years. Looking forward to more grasshopper items in the future. 05-30-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by As BEAUTIFUL AS IMAGINED I received the necklace 2 years ago, and when I saw the earrings, i knew I really wanted them, but i had to wait 2 years and for a 5 easy pay offer to be able to get them. They are my splurge for the year! They are such gorgeous little pieces of art, although they are substantial in size. But, they are not too heavy on the ear. They are perfection. My only question was why the pretty but short style hooks? I have seen these lately on other earrings so perhaps this is a current style? I much prefer a longer hook; however, I believe the size is intentional to make the grasshoppers hang in the ear in such a way that creates a life like position for a grasshopper. I am willing to forego the longer hook and wear the rubber stopper to achieve this look, although wearing stoppers are not my first love with wearing earrings. I am so excited with the beauty and quality of this purchase ! 04-27-15
