"I am surprised that these haven't sold out yet! I find myself reaching for them often because they add the right touch to so many outfits. They come on trips with me because they go so well with things. The color is the main plus because it looks great with so many color combinations, when silver or gold don't seem to add quite the right spark. This reddish gold color plays great off of purples, greens, and blues, as well as grays. It looks good with a multicolored outfit, or just a simple black tee. If you look closely at the photos you will notice the subtle difference of texturing on each side of the hoops; one smooth, the other rough. This adds to the feeling of quality and style. The earrings are big without being overwhelming because of the delicacy of the interlocking hoops. The are in constant movement (and do "chime" a bit when you move your head, but I got used to it.) In reference to the other review, the fact that the ear wires are gold are part of the design, and make them more interesting. My earrings certainly haven't threatened to come apart. If the hook on your pair is a little open, just take a needle nosed pliers and VERY gently squeeze them shut. No big deal. Mine didn't need any modifications however. I'd buy these again at full price; wouldn't want to be without them!"
