A Simple Staple for Years
I have had these large swedged silver hoops for almost eight years! I've never ever had one fall out of my ears on its own. During these eight years I've had four babies, and these are the only hoops I dare wear with an infant in tow. Because of the swedged back, when those sweet tiny hands grab and yank on a hoop, they pop right out of my ear without tearing my lobe. This has occasionally misshapen the thin metal posts, but I've always been able to gently reform the hoop. (If you're having issues with them falling out you simply need to tighten the hoop by bending the swedge a bit more.) I love these so much that I also got the gold medium swedged hoop earrings three years ago. Those are a little less "bendy" but still can be quickly slipped out of the ear when tiny hands start to yank on the hoop. I cannot recommend these enough! It's one of my daily staples.
I love hoop earrings and was extremely excited for them. However, i have to wear a little plastic backing for them not to fall out. And they get tarnish very easily, i just had them cleaned and they got tarnish again after wearing them for 2 days. How can this be? I paid over $100 for them just for them to need to be clean every second. I love James Avery but am extremely dissapointed with this purchase.
- Hi Lisa! We will pass along your feedback about them falling out to our design team. As for the oxidation, this can be caused by sterling silver being exposed to certain chemicals or environments, but our polishing cloths should take clean them up nicely! If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to our customer service at 800-283-1770. Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback! - James Avery Team
I wanted to love these, but the design is flawed. Not only are they difficult to get in, they don't stay in place and fall out easily. Who wants to loose a $100 hoop? Not me, so I never wear them. I have also found that due to the closure, the back of the earring tries to wedge itself into the back of my ear hole, causing irritation.
-Hi Jenn, we're sorry to hear you're not happy with your earrings. We will be sure to forward your feedback to our design time. Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback! - James Avery Team
I love these hoops. Easy to wear, solid, very pretty, comfortable.
I love the quality, size, weight and price of these hoops. I read some reviews where some people had problems with the clasp. You need to read instructions on how to put on, if you follow instructions you will not have issues. I also love the lost earring policy JA has, if you do not know next time at store ask the store rep. Been faithful customer over 15 years, my grandchildren will also wear JA.
I purchased these earrings, in silver, about 3 months ago and I wear them just about every day. They are so light weight and the design is just beautifully classic, yet very trendy. I would love it if they came in several different sizes. I would purchase them all
Over the years,I have purchased many James Avery products for myself, daughter, mother and mother-in-law. These earring were a gift from my husband. The very first time I wore them, one fell out of my ear and was lost. I went to James Avery and they replaced the earrings with extremely minute plastic backs. (The first set came with nothing as seen in the photo). The backs were so tiny and difficult to put on. I eventually had to replace with my own metal backings. The metal on the earring is extremely flimsy and cheap, certainly not the quality I have grown accostumed to when buying from James
Avery. I'm planning on purchasing a new pair of hoop earrings and theses are bending and too difficult to put on. I will not be purchasing another from James Avery. For $89, I would have expected something much nicer. Really
great ear rings
My wife loved them .. she wears them every day .. just beautiful
I bought these earrings about 4 years ago and lost them. I love them so much I'm going to order them again. They are very lightweight and comfortable!
I bought this earrings today and I love it. My husband usually could careless what kind of jewelry I wear, but this earrings, first time he ever complimented me. He likes it and I love it. Very light and the size is just perfect for me.
Wear Alone or with Charms!
I had been wanting these for a long time when Hubby bought them for me for Christmas. He also knew I had been wanting some of the art glass beads, and he had the great idea to hang the beads from these earrings. They look adorable!
Wanted to Love These
I love JA jewelry, but these did not work for me. As I was walking along one day, I reached up to brush my hair off my neck, brushed the earring, and it flew off my ear and onto the pavement. I think they are pretty, but the closure is too flimsy and unreliable.
Fun as well as Elegant
Just received for my birthday -- beautifully made earrings that work perfectly with a casual outfit or a more formal one. I think they are lovely and will enjoy them for a long time. Must be careful to open them side-to-side as the instructions recommend. Have been enjoying JA jewelry for 20+ years.
Classic Hoops Only Better
I bought these earrings in the 14K yellow gold. I was a little disappointed when I had to special order these because they were sold out. I now understand why they were sold out! The earrings are beautiful and shiny, definitely better looking in person than the online picture. I have lots of hoop earrings, but these are so much better. They are fun because of the larger size, but they're elegant and classy. They look good with my hair up or down. Definitely worth the wait. When I ordered, the CS lady said it would take 4 to 6 weeks, but I received them in about a week! Awesome service!
poor clasps, almost lost one
I like the style of the earings, but never found the clasp to work. They often fell out of my ears. Then one fell out when I was out and about, and I was retracing my steps looking for it. I was lucky to eventually find it and I sent them back right away.
JA exchanged them for me for a different style, but I had to pay shipping costs of the new earings.
my aunt gave these to me for my 35th birthday. i love them!
Awesome, classic hoops
These are great hoops! They are a larger hoop so they really stand out. If you are looking for a classic earring, these are the ones. Perfect for anyone!
These earrings are so light weight you don't realize they are on. I love the clasp on them. Love them!!!
They are great, very beautiful. A lot lighter than i thought they would be. They are worth it!
love these hoops
I love these hoops - they are light and airy, but solid not hollow, and have a significant presence. The clasp is built into the hoop, not a finding, so the hoop is unbroken going into the ear. Gorgeous.
Absolutely stunning. These hoop earrings have a non breakable clasp which has been the downfall of every pair of hoops I have ever owned.
