I approve these earrings for your saftey because they are gold plated and will not irriate your ears. And can not easily be yanked out of your ear. They are elegant and add the perfect amount of glimmer to bring out the sparkle in your smile. These are also excellent because they transition from day to night quite nicely. Added bonus these are styled like the Tiffany Brand Diamonds by the Yard collection. Your choice of Gold or White gold plated. All around I give these an A+ for style, function and SAFTEY.
