Rated 4 out of 5 by amazon49 Not Quite Perfect
These earrings are very nice, and they do sparkle, BUT, they do not have any color or fire when they sparkle so that greatly lessens the impact. Reading the other review, what a brilliant idea to have these made with Marcasite as the stone. I would buy them in a heartbeat! Please make that the next Croco piece!! I also think Marcasite would have been the best choice of stone for the Croco necklace as the White Topaz has basically no sparkle. So again, nice earrings, but missed the mark enough that I could not give them the full 5 stars and would not recommend.
Rated 3 out of 5 by LOVES QUALITY HAVE BOTH: Textured and These
Well, I simply love the textured croco 1 1/2 inch hoops and wrote a five star review of them. When these arrived, of course they were more than almost identical. These look exactly like the other pair (saved manufacturing costs for JAI?)save the diamonique, and the ends of the hoops. That I practically despise earrings which have this type of backing, yet like these two pairs of hoops, says a lot. The way these hang from the ears make them highly visible and flattering and that must be due to the way they are kept on the ears with the much despised, tiny, difficult to hold "clutches." I do think this particular pair will "jazz up" my other seven or so JAI croco pieces. This is my first diamonique purchase. They do NOT look like diamonds; trust me! They look like crystals of mediocre quality, for there isn't a lot of sparkle at all! JAI had the PERFECT opportunity to match the marcasite in two of the croco bracelets which look VERY rich and I adore. These hoops were a missed opportunity for JAI and the customers who have bought up so many pieces in this series! For this cost, they should have been studded in marcasite....a rich and interesting color.

These hoop earrings are wonderful. They fit well and look stunning. I can't wait for the other pieces of this crocodile collection. They are a work of art.
