I love these earrings! They're simple and beautiful, while being a little edgy. They were a little hard to get in the first time since they are fairly thick, and my piercings are small, but my ears adapted to them really fast and they've been really comfortable ever since! My only complaint is that, even with my very small piercings, I am CONSTANTLY worried about losing these! I'm really after earrings that I can leave in 24/7 and only change out if I have a special event or want a different look, but these come nearly all the way out when I'm sleeping, have entirely fallen out (thankfully always into my hand) while I'm showering, and often try to wiggle themselves out even just during the course of a day. They really need some kind of ridges or little matching or clear rings you can snap in place to hold them more securely.
