Copper is gone
I bought these earrings because they had copper on them and who can afford James Avery's gold. I like them and have worn them a lot but there is NO COPPER on now. It is all off and they are just silver earrings.
I wish for...
...these with lever backs! These are gorgeous earrings! Please consider!
Good quality product, but colorless
I also agree with some of the reviews below. I too thought they were going to have more of the copper tone. I really dislike when a company posts pics of something their product isn't like.
Not like the photo
I bought this as a gift for my mom because she loves the hammered look and copper. These earrings look nothing like the photo. They just look silver. I have looked at them in all different types of light, thinking that may have been the culprit, but I honestly could never see 2 distinguishable colors. The 2 different colors made the earrings make sense. Without the 2 different colors, they are just a weird little pair of earrings. Oh, and the silver piece on the top of the earrings aren't movable, they are stuck together, which is even more weird. I will be returning them. =(
So, the key to ensuring you have a two-toned earring pair with this is to ensure you keep the set polished and cleaned with a silver polishing cloth. So long as you do this, you will definitely see the two colors of silver and coppers. It does not take much effort, but you cannot expect the colors to stay distinct without proper cleaning. The effort is minimal for a beautiful pay-off.
I love the copper & silver combo !!!
I recently received the matching hammered copper & silver pendant & just had to have the earrings to go with !! The set is so-o-o gorgeous !! I disagree with the other reviewers - they are lovely soft copper shade. It is, after all, jewelry grade copper not plumbing grade copper. I just love the James Avery collection.
Beautiful Earrings and Matching Pendant
I received these earrings and the matching pendant for Mother's Day and they are just beautiful! The earrings are not too heavy and they are just gorgeous.
I own dozens of Avery pieces purchased over the past 20 yrs. I loved the style of this & rec'd the earring & matching pendant for a gift 3 days ago. After wearing for 1 day the copper part had green spots on it. Was told it is a chemical type reaction of the 2 metals touching. It does not meet the standards I'd expect from James Avery jewelry.
I bought these earrings for my mom for Christmas. She loves them! She said they're beautiful and she's already gotten many compliments on them.
Disappointed in the color
I asked for these earrings from my husband after seeing them in the catalog and online. When I received them for my birthday I was very disappointed that the copper color was so faint that it just looked silver and not two-toned silver and copper as the picture indicates. I love the weight and the feel of these earrings and they are very good quality. Just don't expect the color to be as dark as the picture looks.
