Kenneth Jay Lane's Set of Interchangeable Earrings
Nice idea BUT . . .
These earrings are sooooo heavy! Uncomfortable and not light enough for thinning ear lobes even on this 40 something girl. I'll have my daughters see if they could use them but am doubtful. Seem too matronly for them. I've only ordered KJL items twice and both times, he missed the mark!
The liked the sparkly flower studs and attachments, but I didn't like the circular ball studs. To matronly looking for me. Sorry they are going back.
I got the goldtone and they look like real yellow gold. I love having so many options but I agree with the other reviewer who said some of the drops aren't very visible under brown hair. That's not enough to keep me from loving them, though. I don't see how the bottoms could fall off if you wear the plastic backings that came with them. I don't necessarily like the pinching feeling of them but it keeps them secure. I don't find them heavy at all and think they're the perfect size. I'm so glad I tuned in when they were a One Time Only!
The post design on these earrings is great and being able to change the color of the drop makes them even better. They are obviously designed so the drop is slightly smaller than the top post. They would not look right otherwise. When they are on your ear with the backing on the drop balls will not fall off because they are up against the clear backing.The hammered gold posts are slightly heavy . That is the only drawback I found. Love the versatility!
The ear rings pinch your ear and seem to be too heavy. Cute idea, but just not wearable. Will return my set. Darn.
I WAS SO EXCITED TO GET THE EARRINGS, HAD THEM ON FOR A MOMENT AND THE BOTTON PIECES KEPT COMING OFF. I AM AFAID I AM GOING TO LOOSE THEM BECAUSE NO MATTER WHAT THEY WONT STAY TOGETHER. I AM SO DISAPPOINTED I WANTED THIS TO BE MY SPRING LOOK!
Just what I wanted
I purchased the goldtone, they were beautiful in the box . I don't think I will have a problem with the balls slipping off as the back comes down over the hook slightly keeping the attachment secure. My biggest problem was deciding which metal color before they sold out. I am very pleased they were better than expected, my husband liked them so much he is giving me them for Valentine's Day.
Pretty and Feminine
I really like the top parts of these earrings. Earrings that have a top section covering the earlobe are always very flattering. I also like the attachments; they are versatile and give a variety of options. There are some interesting combinations here. The reason I didn't give them a 5, is because several of the extensions are too dark for us brunettes. They don't show up against dark hair. I would have preferred a few more colors. Other than that I am very happy with this purchase, and I will be wearing these often.
I received these earrings yesterday and wore today and think they are nicely made and have great versatility! Very cute to wear with a ton of outfits.
these are perfect and love soooooo many possibilities. Packaged great to keep organized beautifully.
I couldn't wait for these earrings to arrive. Loved the different options and versatility as shown on air (got the silvertone). When I tried them on, I knew I couldn't keep them. The post is too short & the back pinched my ear. I have medium length hair just to my shoulders and one of the bottom beads came off just as I was trying them on in front of the mirror. Overall, I like the look and all the options, but they just aren't wearable. This was my first KJL purchase & probably my last. They have to go back.
Save your money
Top ball is to large...should have been made with the bigger ball at the bottom.
Detaches very easily. Make my ears itch.....sorry
