Honora Cultured Pearl 9.0mm Button Sterling Stud Earrings
Love At First Sight!
I fell in love the first time i opened the box! I can wear this everyday and it goes anything i wear, love it!
Glad I decided to give it a try; these earrings are a total beauty....was considering them as present 4 my cousin; now I am thinking I'll have hard time giving them away :-)
I purchased these earrings some time ago for myself to wear to a special wedding. I loved them and I received many compliments on my elegant pearl and "diamond" earrings.
Before Christmas, I was browsing the website for my three sisters, two of whom were born in June. When I saw these again, I bought a pair for each of my sisters (including the one born in December) for Christmas. They loved them and all immediately put them on to wear for the rest of the holiday. These earrings feel great on and look spectacular!
Thanks QVC and Joel!
I ordered these because the surrounding "diamonds" made the earring look attractive. They looked to be a good size. The package arrived. The presentation packaging -- the beautiful jewelry bag-- was amazing! It represented a quality item. The earrings are a disappointment. The pearls are a really nice size. The "diamonds" are of the canardly variety. Can-hardly-see-them! I have real diamond earrings (lct ec) that were bezel set. I had them remade with surrounding diamonds. They came out so small, I didn't like the result and so I gave them to my daughter as a gift. (Well, I had been in & out of hospital with hip surgeries (6) and she is a Good Daughter and deserved them) I still don't like them. She does. She likes these too, so I guess I'll keep them. I still would prefer bigger surrounding "diamonds".
Very Disappointing, Very poor Quality...
I ordered these earrings for two reasons they appeared to be very nice online and on the video presentation they also appeared to be nice in size, second reason was the 5 star reviews.
They were to be a gift for my mother-in -law. Well they came yesterday I was excited to see them, so I opened the package and right from there that's when my expectations of Quality & Value start to fade. I will explain:
#1- opened the box, nice gold Honora box, that was good, inside the box was a little silk Honora bag I though okay, unzipped it and pulled out a large ziplock baggie with two smaller ziplock baggies with an earring in each baggie. Right away I knew there was no way I could gift this to my Mother-in Law in such a manner! Terrible presentation! So I though okay I will repackage them in a suitable box. Well, now onto #2 why they are going back.
#2- The Quality, Size, Value and just about everything was a total let down! The setting as another reviewer stated is horrible! there is practically NO sterling silver, just a skeleton setting that this pearl sets in, there is virtually hardly any structure, very cheap looking,& the butterfly backs are super tiny! The pearls themselves weren't of the same Quality Honora pearls that I currently own. No real lustre just flat in color.
So to sum it up, I love and respect my Mother-in Law way to much to give these embarassing Over priced Cheap earrings to her as a gift. They are most definitely not worth $45.87 (price plus shipping and tax) and to top it off the $6.95 loss to send them back!
Sorry this was a bit long winded but I really wanted people to get a good idea of what they will be getting if they decide to get these earrings. I love QVC and Honora but these definitely need retooling!!
I'M AMAZED AT ALL THE 5 STAR RATINGS THESE EARRINGS RECEIVED. MAYBE MINE WAS DEFECTIVE OR SOMETHING. THE PAIR I RECEIVED LOOKED SO CHEAP. I HAVE PURCHASED A LOT OF HONORA PEARLS AND WAS SURPRISED AT THE QUALITY OF THESE. THEY LOOKED LIKE THEY CAME FROM THE 99 CENT JEWELRY STORE! I IMMEDIATELY SENT THEM BACK, OF COURSE! I REALLY CAN'T UNDERSTAND HOW THIS PAIR PASSED QVC QUALITY CONTROL.
They are just lovely. They shine like no other and look like they are surrounded by diamonds! Great every day earring!
Perfect with Disc Backing
I ordered these in lieu of regular sterling ball stud earrings- and I am SO HAPPY I DID! I think they are unique with the sterling setting. They are really beautiful and show up nicely with my long, dark hair. They are my new everyday earrings. I plan to wear them mostly casually, but you can (of course!!!!) wear them dressy too! HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Not as they seem
I usually only review things I give top ratings to, but an email was sent asking my input so here I am. I took these out, very excited, and right away the post and setting looked like they would not hold the lovely pearls that I had truly hoped for (exactly the size I wanted.) The setting is hollow and very fragile looking; I could imagine it breaking and losing the pearls on the first wearing. So, I popped them back into the bag and am sending them back. Very disappointed in the quality of the setting; pearls gorgeous.
I bought these for my mother. When they came I realized I should have ordered 2 pair.
They are a wonderful size for her and the sterling ring around the pearl, looks like diamonds, since they sparkle so much. Thank you Honora for another beautiful pair of earrings.
classy and beautiful
I had been looking for a pearl stud earring for a while and initially ordered the 11mm TSV Honora studs and then saw this online and ordered it. Needless to say I'm glad I did. They are beautiful and the diamond cutting really looks like diamonds. They look prettier and a little different compared to the usual pearl stud look. I am keeping this one. They are great gifts for mom, sisters, girlfriends, bridesmaidsetc or even as a teacher gift. What teacher wont appreciate a classic real pearl stud.
I bought these based on the reviews and they are worth it! They are substantial and they look gorgeous. Would recommend to anyone who is looking to save money on beautiful pearl earrings.
