"These are much lighter then they appear (weight wise). The gold are more of antique bronzey tint. These are really great if your a hoops kind of girl. They are very large earrings, bigger then the circumference of a coke can for sure. I am not really an earrings person as anything but surgical steal tends to irritate me esp bigger things. Not my style but I gave them a 5 because they are very neat looking!"
