Classic style
Fit and Comfort
I had been watching and waiting to get my hands on a pair of these and finally I bit the bullet (after trying to find cheaper alternatives) and bought these beauties.

Now I might note mine actually arrived broken. They were amazingly packaged in layers upon layers of bubble wrap in a box much larger than the box for the earrings, and even with padding inside the box with the earrings. This leads me to believe perhaps they were broken prior to shipping.

Since I live in Canada, and duties and shipping to PUG are very expensive and take a while, I decided not to return them for an exchange but rather just fix them myself. (One hoop was detached from the clip, and the clip part itself was completely bent making the earring impossible to open; none the less, something I could fix)

Regardless of that, I do love these earrings and find myself putting them on with multiple different styles. They instantly class and sass up an outfit normally quite casual!

I will note though that after aprx 10-15 wears I've noticed in some spots the plating chipping off.

Why did I wait so long to buy these?
Fit and Comfort
I was reluctant to purchase these for a long time because of the price, but after looking around for cheaper versions and actually seeing some horrible dupes a friend had purchased, I kept coming back to this and finally just said EFF IT and bought a pair.

They arrived in a pink box with a hand-written Thank You note from designer Elizabeth Claire Taylor, super cute! Anyways, the first thing I noticed was the amazing quality and weight of it. Not heavy, where it will hurt your ears, but just...beautifully made. The metal wasn't thin, the hoop was also a complete hoop, not a 'half hoop', if that makes sense. They are completely authentic and SO GORGEOUS in person. Superb quality worth every penny!

Also, I'd like to add that these earrings are VERY versatile. Amazing for vintage 50s looks ala Marilyn or Barbie, but I've also included them in some modern looks/styling as well.

The clip ons do make my lobes sore after about 4 hours, but that's super normal for me. Going to grab a pair of silver ones next!

These are beautiful.
Fit and Comfort
I bought these after seeing the earrings Marilyn Monroe wears in a scene in the movie Niagara—these are a little larger, but otherwise dead-on. So pretty on! I wore them to a Memorial Day barbecue with a sundress/swimsuit and felt super glamorous :)

Absolutely beautiful
Fit and Comfort
I had been looking for hoops like these for years and years but could never find a pair that was just perfect. These are identical to the clip-on hoops Marilyn wore in some of her biggest films, which is why I always wanted a pair. I could not be happier with them, they are simply beautiful! I was a little afraid that they'd be too heavy and sliding off, but no, they are extremely comfortable on and stay put. Love them.
