Rated 4 out of 5 by LokisMom Perfect size, poor closure
These earrings are a perfect size and do proclaim your faith in a quietly elegant way
without flaunting it. However, the closure safety bar is not well made and snapped
off the third time I wore the pair. Now, since I want to wear them for Easter, I will have
to see if my local jeweler can repair them speedily. I would not recommend them as
a present because I believe "statements of faith" should be chosen by the person who
will wear them.
Rated 3 out of 5 by rubytuesday1 Tricky closure
I got these because of the diamonds and the crosses, but I prefer the high polished silver. I think the satin dulls the brilliance and sparkle of the diamonds. Secondly, these have a nice presence but the diamonds are really small and towards the upper portion of the cross only, and they sit a little heavy on the ears (which I do not like as at my age, I do not want to stretch and enlargen my ear piercings). Thirdly, I think the backing is a little tricky. On my pair, once you put the earring on and pull the backing up, you need to push it again and you will hear and feel a little snap, which now means they are secure. They seem well made but looked rather dull and while the sat nicely in the ears, they were not comfortable due to the weight. The post in the back is nice and long for those who have thick ear lobes.

I initially was not going to order because they are a bit pricy since they have a bit of real diamonds, but I love the satin finish in sterling which you don't find much. I was also going to return because I have had some problems with the closure. You need to check to make sure they are secure on your ear in the back. I have a larger earlobe and since they don't "snap" shut, I have to double check to make sure they are secure. Anyway, these are a lovely earring. I hope Elizabeth makes an oval shape but due to the more flat back, these don't stick out on the ear like some round earrings do. One suggestion: use diamonique to lower to cost, but they are the earrings I tend to wear on a daily, going anywhere, basis. I love this designer's jewelry.
