I paid $160 for these earrings in Dec 2017. I wore them 3 times and I always store them in their pouch. I went to put them on and i was having trouble with the clasp. When i took out the post, not only was it bent, but I am surprised it just didnt come right off. I have been a loyal customer of JA all my adult life. This experience has brought them down in stars. I have to take them back to the store now to see about repair or replacement. I will review once I am done to let you know if they are redeemable.
