Rated 4 out of 5 by EmmaJay Posts Too Thick, But Beautiful!
These arrived today. I also couldn't get the posts through my piercings! (I've had my piercings almost 30 years).
Luckily I also make my own jewelry so I replaced the hook with some different ones I had on hand. I tried them on with my replacement hooks and they're gorgeous, subtle sparkle, not visually heavy at all.
The 1 star knock off is because of the posts, otherwise these are 5 stars.
Rated 4 out of 5 by hvmi Post is VERY thick
Although these are pretty - the post was so thick I could not get them in my ears. I do have trouble with this anyway so I did go ahead and give them 4 stars thinking the average person may not have this same problem. However, keep in mind they are not the "normal" thickness of this style post.

I love the shape of these earrings. They are long, but because they narrow at the bottom, they are not overwhelming. They have a strong presence, while still being delicate. Someone reviewed the necklace or bracelet and felt the silver was too dark. Yes, it's darker than some ultra fine pieces I have, but they still look like silver to me. They glitter and reflect the light beautifully. The way these hang from the bar, the beads don't clump and overlap each other, so the width is true. (I noticed the bracelet strands ran together a bit). I was so pleasantly surprised when I opened the box. It has been a long time since a piece of jewelry made me this happy (and I have a decent amount of silver).
