Granted I paid £3.85 and not the £9... odd now being charged so I would have been very angry, upon receiving them after paying the £9... odd being charged now. I was more than disappointed. They were very similar to a product that you would get on the market for your children say 30 pairs for £3.00.. I would never have put them in my ears for fear of them breaking leaving the metal (NOT SILVER) in my ear... I cannot begin to tell you how angry I was even though I had only paid only £3.85, they were silver coloured rubbish . I did contact Amazon and the seller and I was told to return the product for a refund... I did not!!... so that is to my detriment, my reasons were that I had every intention of contacting Amazon and trading standards as this is false advertising, the earrings are NOT Silver as claimed and it is simply not enough to return them... this product should NOT be advertised, another reason is why should I have to go to the expense and inconvenience of paying to send back absolute rubbish that is NOT as advertised and is contrary to the Consumer Law. Although I do find it strange that they are now selling at 3 times the price I paid... did they simply make a mistake and advertise the product at the wrong price and decided to send me something of far inferior quality.. I cannot be sure but BE WARNED do NOT BUY them or anything from this seller as I feel he is not a reputable seller. I feel insulted having to give one star, I wish they had - (minus) stars... After this I have decided never to buy Jewelry from Amazon again.
