The backing of my earring was defective causing 1 of the earrings to fall off several times over the course of my first week wearing them. The last time the earring fell off I was at work in the hospital and unable find the earring. I am incredibly disappointed as 70$ for studs is a huge splurge that I contemplated for several months. I purchased these earring as a 30th birthday gift to myself and now I'm left 70 dollars poorer and without any earrings. I am so depressed and feel so stupid for wasting my money that I didn't even want to discuss this or write a review but I thought I should warn others who are not well off that the cost for quality may not be worth it for them.
