J260160 - Smithsonian Black Enamel & Garnet Sterling Hoop Earrings
Enamel Is Nice
For the price, these earrings are not worth it. The black enamel is very nice but the rose blush garnets are barely visible. I had no snap bar closure problems.
SNAP BAR CLOSURE PROBLEM
When I saw these earrings on clearance, I ordered them right away along with the matching ring. I had to return the earrings because the snap bar closures were defective. When the replacement earrings arrived, the snap bar closures were also defective. I am so disappointed because the design is lovely.
Elegant, understated simplicity!
Deceptively simple but elegant and understated. The enameling in the photo looks too bold but I have found them to be very 'quiet': they blend easily with office, dress, and casual wear. Depending on what I wear, they either make a statement or complete the outfit. They are extremely comfortable and wearable for long periods of time. I would consider these a light-medium weight earring. I forget that I have them on frequently. And, they are NOT too wide. A beautiful, imaginative translation of a Smithsonian treasure.
