The materials are great for the price. The caveat is that they were shipped in a little zip-seal baggie inside another larger shipping baggie (no other padding/insulation) and arrive damaged. As soon as I opened the small baggie, one of the gemstones fell apart from the rest. Also, one of the posts were bent, which affected how the one earring hangs (not as close to the ear lobe as the other). Not worth going about returning, but now I am scared to go through with another purchase of earrings that I was planning, since I don't expect anything more packaging-wise.
