The earrings are beautiful. I was a little hesitant in renting them, but when I got them, I also rented the Nicole Miller gown , they went perfect. No necklace ladies with these babies!! If you want to stand out with a beautiful gown and a beautiful hairdo (in my case it was an updo), these are perfect. They are a bit heavy, but not uncomfortable. I wore them all night and danced up a storm. I got lots of compliments on them also. They are big, so if you don't want to be a glamour girl for the night, these are not for the meek. Loved them!!
