J32304 - Suspicion Sterling Marcasite Wide Huggie Hoop Earrings
Very nice, updated style
I ordered these in the fall after seeing them during last fall's Creede Silver Strike event. This was my first marcasite purchase ever, from QVC or otherwise, since I tend to wear more high-polished pieces. These earrings really appealed to me because I love, love, love smaller-diameter hoop earrings!
The earrings are very pretty. I've only worn them a few times during nighttime events, but they have gotten a compliment each time. They are heavier than I had anticipated, but not so heavy that my piercings are aggravated or stretched. They are also quite wide - which does provide a nice bold look, but I do have to remove the small narrow hoops that I typically wear in my second set of piercings.
All in all - four stars for a very nice pair of earrings that complements my jewelry wardrobe. Probably would have given five stars if not for the snap-bar closure, which isn't my favorite style of hoop closure.
CUTE BUT NOT PERFECT
I have been waiting forever for QVC to offer a cute pair of petite snap bar marcasite hoops. These are cute but heavy and slightly off balance because they are so wide. Why can't you just make a smaller version of J44721 then they would be perfect. I wear a lot of marcasite so will keep these just until the perfect pair comes along.
I have several suspicion marcasite jewelry pieces, and have been pleased with all of them. When I opened the box, the first thing I noticed that there were several marcasite pieces missing from these earrings. Also, I found some of the loose pieces in the bag it was in, but there were more missing than I found. These pieces had to have fallen off before it was even put in the earring box. Also, one of the earrings was bent in at the bottom rim. Of course I sent these back for a refund. I still love this line of jewelry, but I suggest not to puchase these.
My latest favorite
This is my latest marcasite purchase and I knew from the first glance that I would love them. The simplicity and ease of the huggies style coupled with the marcasite makes for a powerful impression. I wore them immediately, true sign of an adored acquisition. Wore these with black denim as well as to an after work social--both ways looked amazing. Simple, versatile, exquisite. Love, love, love.
