I've bought multiple pairs of earrings from this store & have always been VERY pleased with the quality. This company has always provided me with OUTSTANDING customer service, too. However, I was quite disappointed with these earrings. I've previously purchased multiple pairs of the post pearl earring style & with each pair, the pearls were always well matched in shape, size & color, as they should be. So when I received these & the pearls were NOT well matched AT ALL it was so surprising & disappointing! I got one earring with a larger, oval shaped pearl & the earring mate had a smaller round pearl. And all 3 pairs were like that so it wasn't that I'd just gotten a bad set. It was a case of ZERO QUALITY CONTROL!! I bought these to give as gifts but would've NEVER felt comfortable giving these to anyone the way I received them! Thankfully, I purchased 3 pairs of these pearl hoop earrings so I was able to remove all of the pearls & match up the shapes & sizes to create 3 well matched sets of pearl earrings. Otherwise, I would've returned them all. The pearls were so mismatched & it made them look very cheap. And even though I got them on sale, these were not cheap earrings! They cost me enough that the pearls should've been well matched without my having to do a thing to them. If you're only buying 1 pair, sadly, I wouldn't recommend these earrings because odds are your pearls will not look like they belong together in the same set of earrings. If you're buying multiple sets you'll probably be able to do what I did but we really shouldn't have to do that. Personally, I'd just buy them someplace else. The only reason I kept my earrings is that I was able to put together 3 pairs that looked like they were matched sets. I didn't want to have to hassle returning them unless absolutely necessary. But if I'd started from the beginning knowing what I now know about the lack of quality control with these earrings, I never would've bought this particular style from this store.
