Heavier earrings, but not extremely. I couldn't wear them for the entire night because they started hurting my ears so bad. Quality doesn't match the price. They are cute, but they aren't worth the price. Not alot of sparkle with these. If you have sensitive ears, or don't like heavier earrings, they aren't for you. I really wouldn't recommend, mostly for the rental price, you could probably go buy some cuter for cheaper.
