Not too small and not too large. The design is understated elegance. Over 40 years ago, I had a pair of gold earrings with a very similar design that I loved dearly and wore constantly. They eventually broke, were unfixable and irreplaceable. Finding these was deja vu and I'm thrilled!

I love the design of this earring. Every time I wear them I receive compliments. I purchased a second pair to keep in my travel bag.
Same as others- Back broken. 2nd pair!
By Darlene from Bethel, CO

First pair broke, the post, like so many others. The post actually ended up in my ear, while the earring fell to the ground. Second pair, the hinge on the back broke, after less than a year. I wrote to Brighton, and I'll see what they will do to compensate. I love Brighton items, and hope that this earring was not a good representation of the company. Perhaps it was a design flaw from the start. I hope. Frustrated, but hoping the company will stand behind their name.
Loved it... beautiful

Broke right out of the box

These earrings were just what I had been looking for! Unfortunately when I put them on the very first time, the lever broke off. I had planned to exchange them for an identical pair but read the online reviews. After learning this is a recurrent problem with these earrings, I exchanged them for something else. The poor quality control is disappointing.
Loved for less than a year- then broke

These were my favorite. They went on so easily (I love the omega back earrings). Last week, the post actually broke off while still in my ear. The earring fell down to the ground, and the post was still IN my ear, horrible experience. The metal also became pitted and ugly in less than a year. The tiny crystal was enough to catch the light, but not enough to look over-done. I wore these with jeans all of the time. A shame. A year ago, I would have given this 5 stars, EASILY.
Christmas gift for my mom

I ordered these earrings as a Christmas gift for my mom. During this busy shipping season, I was really impressed with Brighton and the customer service representatives who helped me with a "lost" package. The gift wrapping and detail was fantastic. My mom is very happy with the earrings. They look nice and are a perfect size for day to day wearing.
Like a lot but clasp broke after 5 times wearing

These earrings and matching pendent necklace are beautiful. I love that you can wear the necklace with the crystals showing or not. Shipping was very fast and they were nicely packaged.

Actually I had to return a pair of Brighton earrings that I received as a Birthday gift because they broke the second time I wore them...I then exchanged them for these earrings and the 2nd time I put them on the spring back literally fell off...I have had a lot of Brighton, but the quality now seems to be pure junk!
Beautiful but not durable
By Peggy from Dedham, MA
On August 8, 2013:
I received these for Christmas. I wore them maybe five times until the post broke off. What a shame because I loved them and they went with anything I wore. They have been in my kitchen drawer waiting to be taken back for repair-it is August!!!!!! After reading the other reviews I am making it a point to bring them in.
Larger than expected
By Susan from Laurel, MS
On July 30, 2013:
The earrings are very pretty but just larger and heavier than I expected.

I loved the look of these earrings but the spring broke. I took them back to the retailer and they replaced it but the new pair did the same thing not even a week later. I took them back but was told that I had to send them to the manufacturer which was going to cost me money. NO WAY!!! Fix it for free when it's clearly a manufacturer error.
I liked the size

My father bought these earring for me two years ago. I have loved them from day one! I wear them at least twice a week. Every time I wear them get compliments. I have not had any of the issues with the backs as other reviewers. Beautiful pair of earrings that can be dressed up or casual.
Not happy @ all pretty to look at unable to wear
By Carol from Summerfield, FL
On May 17, 2013:
My first pair wore once and the lever back came off. Sent back waited 3 months for 2nd pair put them on the earring fell off only the pin remained in my ear.( I am VERY careful with jewelry) Was told I'd have to pay this time etc. So they sit in my jewelry box unable to use @ all. I do have MANY Brighton items and happy with ALL but these earrings. As stated pretty to look at unable to wear. I am NOT a complainer & only wrote this as I see I'm not alone.
Only one left
By Gloria from Aspen, CO
On April 12, 2013:
A great look. I wore them the second time for my son who loved them only to find just one on my ear, the other never to be seen again. After reading the reviews I am afraid to buy another pair if my loss was due to the faulty leverback.
By Donna from Fairview, TX
On January 14, 2013:
I had the same problem as so many others. The lever back broke only a few times after wearing them. I returned them to the store for repair. I'll see how they hold up!
I am so happy with these earrings
By Jorja Merrick from Canton, TX
On January 12, 2013:
I bought these a couple of years ago and they were my favorites! I wore them over and over. I had no trouble with the backs but one day noticed one of the stones was gone. I sent the earring back hoping they could replace the stone and yesterday I received a whole new pair. Thank you, thank you, thank you Brighton.

I was a little disappointed because I bought the necklace and I wanted to have the matching earrings. I had to return the earrings because the clasps were very lose and ended up falling off.
By Pam from DeKalb, IL
On July 9, 2012:
I purchased the matching necklace first & enjoyed wearing it so much I purchased these earrings. When I got them home I noticed one of the lever backs was very loose so I exchanged them & the second pair also had a loose lever back. I will be returning them for a refund.
Pretty with a small flaw
By Sophia from Brookeville, MD
On February 2, 2012:
The earrings are very pretty and I do love them; however there is an inherent design flaw in the way the backs sre soldered to the earring. If this is not done correctly the backs will come loose from the earrings as one of mine did. My solution was to remove both backs (they can be pulled out) and use slide on type earring backs. They work just as well and you can still wear the earrings.

I just adore these earrings. They are like having hoops and a post all in one. They are not heavy like I thought they would be. The lever backs are outstanding, making them comfortable to wear. Love them!

Very Nice for Awhile
By Linda from Novato, CA

The first reviewer had a similar problem to mine. The back clasp managed to bend ever so slightly, and this was the case coming from the store of purchase. One earring back didn't match up, so it required a slight lateral bend to match up the hole. After doing that and wearing them, it was maybe one more wearing, and the clasp broke off. Brighton was nice enough to replace them though. Thanks Brighton!! I hope they continue to look great!
They really are beautiful
