Earrings are a high gradel material. I was very impressed with the weight of these. Not that they are heavy but they are not lightweight meaning they are made of junk metal. They are made of a solid durable high quality and it is apparent in the weight of the earing. I like the style. These are a great quality set with a variety of color options. I love the design and look it gives you. I think this is a wonderful set to have and is durable and made of strong high quality material that will not leave you irritated or turning green. I definitely recommend this and think it is a very great deal. I am very happy and impressed with the quality.
