I waited to write a review on these lovelies, because I wanted to see how they held up to regular wear, and abuse.
Out of the box they are beautiful and delicate....just what I wanted. With daily (nearly constant) wear for the last two months the finish is holding up spectacularly! They are comfortable to sleep in. I bought these to replace 9mm solid gold huggie hoops that I loved for years ...until I lost one. The clasp on these pavoi hoops is excellently made. They close with a solid click, and I have never had them open unexpectedly. The hinge is solidly made, and the straight earwire makes them easy to put in your ear. I have worn them awake, asleep, in the shower, at the gym...and they have held up to all of the abuse heaped upon them. No missing CZs, no peeling finish, no itchy ears. I will be buying all the colors! As an added bonus, these little suckers are solidly made, and beautifully finished all the way around... so....you can flip them around and wear them the opposite way if you are not in the mood for CZ sparkles. These are a FRACTION of the cost of the earrings they are replacing, and I like them better!
