I like the style of these earrings and the large back bead is trendy right now. I purchased this primarily for the stainless set, though I may keep the rose for myself and gift the gold set to a friend. The stainless seems a bit darker than other stainless steel items I have in my jewelry collection. When I first received them I immediately put on the stainless earrings and continued to wear them for 3 days (night and day). I usually wear earrings nonstop like this, and the beads on the back help make them comfortable to sleep in. They are quite heavy, and I took them off because of that fact--my ears were starting to hurt a bit. I realize I'm likely not in the norm for wearing my earrings night and day like this, but I suspect the weight of these earrings may hurt more sensitive ears even to wear just for the work day. I think they would be better if slightly less heavy because the back pulls down instead of staying up like I've come to expect for this style of earring--that is, I see it hanging below the lobe when viewed from the front instead of it being something that is primarily seen from the side or behind. I had planned dual purpose for these earrings, being able to wear them both as shown and "backward" for a slightly more bold bead on the front, but the weight of the bigger bead makes that not work because it slumps forward (perhaps if I could tighten them more I could secure it enough to not droop). I'm not hugely disappointed, but I do think it would be better if the back bead were slightly lighter (perhaps with a resin core to reduce weight) because it would improve comfort for some wearers, and I think it would increase versatility of this set so they could be worn "backward" without slumping. The weight does make it feel like a quality set, but it's just a bit too much for a bead that should stay tight on the ear. I do like the earrings overall, however.
The listing description indicated this was Steel by Design(R) Jewelry, but the box and inner fabric bag were marked as Judith Ripka, so I don't know if the listing is wrong or if I received a repackaged (incorrectly) item.
Rated 5 out of 5 by basil Five Stars For Each Pair!
I am sorry that some reviewers had less than ideal luck with this set because I have found them to be like everything in Baby Bear's world: Just right! I have very small, almost non-existent ear lobes and, while I can feel these in my ear lobes, they do not pull and have turned out to be quite comfortable. No problem on the phone. No allergic reaction. Always appropiriate (not too big).. Amazingly refined for something so up-to-the-minute! I highly recommend.

Was looking for a couple good pairs of stud earrings. These are not them. They're heavy and using the large stud as the backing is simply stupid. I may be able to use regular backings from other earrings. If not, they go back.

These are so cute! Love that the set includes, gold, rose gold and silver. You can where them with the larger ball attached or just the smaller ball by adding your own back. I didn't find them heavy like some other reviewers did. Very pleased.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Judi Tennant Really bad purchase that arrived broken
These earrings gave no size but we're listed as studs (double sided) and reversible. I don't see how as the one side has a rather LARGE ball that would be very visible as well as uncomfortable when wearing them this way. Also, one of the gold tone earrings was broken and came that way from the manufacturer and they KNEW it! The earrings are extremely HEAVY!! My ears are pierced 5 times so if I tried to wear all 5 pairs at the same time, my earlobes would be sitting on my shoulders, Needless to say, they are going back!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by From Denver Cute style....... BUT
I was happy to find this set of earrings trio but the yellow gold pair was defective. The ball that secures the earring to the back kept falling off. Had to return
Rated 3 out of 5 by Grandmacindy Heavy Heavy and hard to put on
These are very hard to put on when inserting post from back to front. Also these are so heavy when wearing the large balls in front. They pull the lobe down. But will keep and wear the small balls with backs I already have.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JoanFran Love These!!
These are so pretty! Not heavy at all for me, and love all the colors, even though I am a silver girl. Price is great too!
