These are very cute earrings. I just wish my neck was longer so you could get the full effect. They are quite long and touch my shoulders when my head turns,so we don't get the full dangling look that I wanted,but they are cute. They are also very lightweight, seeming to be made of a Styrofoam/ cardboard like material. So,definitely needs backs to be worn so they don't slip out. But the style is lovely!
