These earrings are well-made and lovely. I have extremely sensitive earlobes, but with a little cortizone cream, I can wear them even though the loops are not pure gold. They are not heavy but look substantial and can be dressed up or down. I've received compliments every time I wear them - even over a Zoom call! They are a great value as well and if you're giving them as a gift they arrive in a pretty package and box.
