Rated 4 out of 5 by FlossyFlossy With Deep Regret
I have been wanting some coin jewelry for quite a while so I Purchased the suite earrings, necklace & bracelet. I love this set but the earrings are difficult to put on and they are too heavy for my ears. Once I get the earrings on they immediately start to hurt. Needless to say with deep regret they must go back. I'm giving a four star because I love these earrings and I will recommend them because my ears maybe too sensitive but someone else's might not be. Kudos to the lucky ladies who are able to wear these beautiful earrings!
Rated 5 out of 5 by reflections Beautiful Earrings
Have been wanting coin jewelry for a while and came across these. Was very impressed when I opened the package, love the two-tone look as it really highlights the gold coin. Was a little worried that they might be too heavy or big for me as I have a smaller face but they're not. They have a nice presence and I liked the sturdiness of the part holding up the earrings, they couldn't be just a thin wire to hold up the coins. I didn't have a problem getting them on but I would suggest being gentle about pulling out due to the cut in back that connects to the post. Thanks for the easy pays as it helped me buy the other pieces to this set.

I got these earrings about a month ago after a long time on wait list. I haven't had a problem putting them on but I do find they are very heavy and I'm ready to take them off after a couple of hours. I think they're very elegant looking and the two-tone goes with gold or silver metal.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Salome Very Difficult
I love the earrings, but they are very difficult to put on, as everyone except one has said. The post is too thick, and it has a sharp dip in it close to the end that starts into the ear, which is just weird, and makes it even more difficult and painful to put in, and to take out after you finally get them in. Also, there is a very narrow space between the part that opens, and the post. I've worn pierced earrings for about 40 years or more, and I've never seen anything like this. No problem, until these earrings. I actually put alcohol on my ear lobes, front and back, because they were so uncomfortable after wrestling with these earrings that I was afraid they might get infected. That being said, I'm keeping the earrings because I love them, and maybe it will get easier to put them on, I hope. I may take them to a jeweler, like others have said.

I have been waiting for these earrings ever since they were presented on air. So disappointed...took me 30 min to get them in my ears...the hinged part on the back does not open far enough, and now they hurt my ears. Since I have other two toned earrings, they are going back. This is a very poor design . The hinged part is too small, the posts are too big, and the bend on the posts makes it almost impossible to get them in. I wear earrings all the time, but these are just plain painful. A redesign is in order. Either a French wire or a larger regular lever back with a thinner hook would make them wearable. Either way, the post needs to be smaller in diameter.
Rated 2 out of 5 by jennifersfolly Pretty, poor design, bad fit.
They are beautiful. VERY difficult to put on and painful. I'm also going to take these to have a new closure put on. Can't recommend. I would send it back, but I love the matching bracelet and wear it all the time. Why on earth would anyone design these with such a thick short bar? The hook at the end also has to go thru the ear, and is bent, making it very painful to put on or take off. Please redesign these!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Scarlett69 Can't get them on
There is a design flaw in this earring. As the other reviewers noted, the post and snap do not open wide enough to go through ear. If one gets one on, it is painful then to take it off.
I love the look very much and am keeping them, however will take them to my jeweler to have a typical post with butterfly back put on.
The earrings were a gift, don't think the "giver" will ever know I have modified them. : )
