I received a pair of these from my then-fiance' (we're married now and I wore them at our wedding) for our first Christmas together. They're gorgeous and I've gotten so many compliments on them. What I especially love (other than the fact that they're pearls and diamonds) are the posts and backings to the earrings. The posts are long enough where I feel like they're not going to fall off (and they never have). The posts are also friction backed so you can make them snug in one click or a little looser in another. I also wear these as my every day earrings. They're beautiful and it was a great purchase!
