Arte d'Oro 1-1/2" Satin & Polished Twist Hoop Earrings, 18K is rated
Rated 2 out of
I like the style and colors of these tri- color gold twisted earrings, but was disappointed by the quality. Arte d' Oro is normally exceptional and these were intended as an exceptional gift. The hoops are held on the ear by thin wires instead of more substantial clasps. They are harder to put on and in my opinion, are not as comfortable. One wire's shape is angled higher than the other so they hang differently in each ear. One ear wire is too loosely attached at its base creating a rattle. When closing the wire clasp, the hoop itself flexes. A support bar would have helped maintain the earrings' shape. Overall, the quality is not what one would expect for the cost. They arrived in the generic QVC cardboard box, not the lovely green suede Arte d'Oro box of years past.
