What’s your statement? I sure made one in Avon’s Sterling Silver Statement CZ Earrings! These were so blindingly sparkly that I couldn’t get a good clear close up photo of them, despite my trying multiple different things–if you want to see better detail, click the link above and examine the professional close up shots. In spite of the CZs’ sparkle factor being off the charts, I really wasn’t a fan of these. And the back settings are entirely to blame. If you look at my close up photo, you can see that the earring is not sitting flush with my lobe–that’s because when you flip over the earring, there is a four-corner post-like setting that elevates the entire CZ face, but it’s smaller in diameter than the face, so, even though it’s pretty in its own right, once it’s on the ear, you can’t see it and it makes the earring appear to be hovering above the lobe. All day long when I saw them in the mirror, I tried to tighten up the backs, because the way the earrings sat made them look like they were loose–but they weren’t. Total fail.
