I'm going to return these earrings. Even for the price they aren't worth it because I won't wear them. The actual design of the stud is beautiful and looks great but the base/closure of the earring is so large and sticks out and you can see it when you wear them and it just doesn't look good. I thought I noticed this on the model picture but I still decided to give them a try. I think it's just a design flaw. But if this feature was removed/made smaller, these earrings would be great and I would definitely wear them often. I also think the earring are smaller in real life than they appear on the model shot, but I actually like the actual size better.
