I saw these in the store, loved them and couldn't wait to wear them. I tried to put them in my ear.... the first one was a struggle because the "post" was a little thick. The second one would not go through my earring hole at all! On closer inspection, it's even thicker than the first one. Hugely disappointing, and they're a final sale. At least they were 40% off. I should know better than to buy jewellery at Reitmans.... I love clothes but the quality of the accessories is usually lacking.
