Too hard to put on
from Montreal, Quebec
I really prefer lever back mechanisms (French wires are comfortable but I'm losing my earrings). I figured that these hoop earrings at least won't get lost. Unfortunately,the wire that goes through the hole in the ear is thin like a needle and would hurt my ear while I'm trying to pass it through the hole or to close the mechanism behind the year (where I cannot see what I'm doing). Sometimes I would poke my ears a few times, although I became slightly better after a few days. The mechanism is also very delicate (it may break soon) and since the wire is very short, it's hard to attach the mechanism behind the ear without the ear lobe getting caught in the mechanism or otherwise fumbling around and getting hurt or having the earring come out of the ear. The back of the closure mechanism does not touch the head once it is finally into the ear (that's a good thing) and the earring is very lightweight, although it's hard to tell when the closure mechanism is closed. I thought one inch might be too large but it's not really, although I find that hoops don't go well with the round shape of my head. But the real problem is that short needle that needs to be passed through the hole and fixed behind with a precise gesture if I don't want to hurt my ear lobe. I can even sleep with the earrings on, they are not uncomfortable once in, but on most days (I only had them for a few days) I removed the earrings after a few hours due to having hurt my ear lobes when I was trying to put them on.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
