These earrings are quite thin. I liked the idea of Platinum over Sterling; an inexpensive alternative to pure platinum. The earrings needed to be polished upon opening the box, and the diamond accents were so tiny that they didn't exhibit any fire or brilliance (they were actually quite dull). [...] The clasp is terrible. After a full day of wearing the earrings one of them popped right out of my ear and onto the floor. I tried to remedy the faulty clasp by tightening it- now I can't get it to close at all! I will be returning these earrings- it's worth the extra money to find a more suitable pair.
