Rated 1 out of 5 by bcad horrible, cheap, poor quality
I am sorry to say that this is the first Anthropologie purchase I have truly been disappointed with. I ordered these online as they are not available in stores and received them today. First, the stones do not appear to be glass in my opinion but cheap acrylic or plastic stones, and they appear to be glued in. They are very light on the ears and look and feel like the kind of earrings you would pay less than $20 for in other stores. The color is not as pictured online; it is more of a minty green color which would be beautiful if the earrings were of better quality. Another sore point with me is that part of the appeal of these earrings was that they were said to be made in the USA, however the earrings I received came shipped in a plastic bag with the words "Made in China" printed on it. All in all, with shipping and tax I paid about $42 for these earrings-much too high a price for what I received. I will be returning these. It is a shame because aesthetically the design is very nice-but the quality is poor. I feel that you can find similar items at other stores for a much cheaper price. In my opinion-don't waste your money, or buy them if they go on sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katrine Better than expected
I ordered these earrings because of the style and color-I often design and make jewelry,so am picky about purchasing. After reading the 1 star review I expected to be disappointed. However, the color is as pictured, style is lovely and
the earrings are surprisingly lightweight. This is because, as noted, the glass stones are foil backed and flat. Doesn't matter as the back is not seen when worn. Overall,beautiful earrings in a hard to find shade.
