Light, comfortable, pretty
I bought these to go with a brown crystal necklace I've had forever and ended up wearing them on their own instead of my usual go-to earrings. They are very light, do not irritate my sensitive earlobes (normally can only wear gold/silver plated), and are very attractive in a subtle way. The "gem" itself is a triangle 1/2 inch in each direction and it's braced in a gold-colored metal. The chain is 1.5 inches, so the whole thing drops about 2 inches. On my face shape (small chin, wider jaw, wider cheek bones), this is a very flattering earring shape, bottom falling right between the jawbone and chin end. I only wish the backside wasn't so blingy - maybe let the gem show on the other side or just use a different, less shiny, finish. And, yes, this is costume jewelry so don't expect a proof stamp.
