5.00 ct tw Black Spinel 1-1/4" Oval Inside-Out Sterling Hoops
This is my first black spinel. I read all the reviews but decided to try them. They are absolutely beautiful!!! The earrings are substantial but not heavy at all. They sparkle in daylight as well as evening/candlelight! I was unsure of the clasp but it's simple, just put the post through your ear and they snap secure!!! Love them!!!!!!
Waited for months, excited for delivery - DARN!
Like everyoune else, I was really looking forward to finally getting these earrings. I have a black spinel dome ring and knew that they would be dynamite together. But, the clasp on one of them was bent or did not align properly and it would not close at all - even with some nudging to get it in place. I am not going to ask for a replacement because I just wasn't that impressed with the sparkle that I should have seen, but didn't. I did not have a problem with loose stones as some have had, however. I'll wait for a better pair to come along as these didn't look worth the cost.
Love Black Spinel
I have been wearing black spinel for about 2 years, people always comment on it, asking is it real, when I say it's black spinel, they ask again is that real, then I explain the history of spinel. I have inside out hoops, with the same closure ( which I love) however I have discovered with black spinel it shows and sparkles at its best when all prongs in the setting are done with black rhodium as opposed to SS. These earrings sparkle nicer than my other pair with silver prongs and are a nice weight to wear all day. I have not had any stone issues to date and these are now my go to earrings. I would assume the black rhodium is a more expensive process but well worth the difference.
Sleek, Elegant, Classy!
I have looked at several inside-out gemstone earrings in the past, but have never thought they were for me. I usually like flowery, filigreed, feminine stuff. These earrings spoke to a part of me I never knew needed a voice, so I took a deep breath and placed an advanced order for them. I am blown away by the upscale elegance of these earrings. The stones are very small, but are side by side by side, and sparkle for all they're worth! I did have a bit of trouble getting them on, however. It's hard to get them around the earlobe and get the post into the hole with such a small amount of room to work with, but I considered it worth the effort after I got them on. I had no missing stones, and hope that will not be a problem as time goes by. I would not recommend these to most of the people I know because of the price, but I personally am glad I bought them.
This was the worst purchase ever
Don't know what happened to quality control at the Q.. I didn't even open the plastic packet these earrings were in. I saw they were missing stones in one of the earrings and there were loose stones that have fallen out inside the packet. They went right back.
Sorry Q but I was VERY disappointed with this product. I won't have given it any stars if that was an option.
Missing a stone
I too waited months to receive, and was missing a stone. It would have been a beautiful pair of earrings, but I had to return. After reading reviews, I did not ask for a new pair, just a refund.
Stunning and Classy
Waited a while for these and it was worth it. They are beautiful and they are a stand out against my ash blonde hair. They just look like glitter sparkling on your ears. Substantial but classic. A winner when you want to be bold or traditional, as hoops are always appropriate. Love.
Beautiful but sadly disappointed!
After waiting for months I received these earrings the other day. I was so excited opening the package only to be disappointed to find several loose stones in the bag! Why would QVC even send this out in this condition? The earrings are quite beautiful and present well with my short dark hair but they must go back. Haven't decided yet if I will risk an exchange or not. Had I received in perfect condition I would rate a 5 star but must give it a 1 since zero is not an option.
Received these a couple of days ago. They were worth the wait. Absolutely stunning.
I REALLY LOVE THESE EARRINGS. THE CLOSURE IS FABULOUS. SPARKLE FACTOR STUNNING! I JUST WISH THEY SHOWED UP BETTER IN MY LONG BRUNETTE HAIR.
Cheap ane Poor Quality
I waited months for this product, and when I recieved it some of the stones were missing. Too expensive for the stones to fall out. Going back for a refund.
