These sweet little mini hoops simply sit in your ear - you can adjust to your liking - for example the top earrings "G shape" can sit with bottom hanging down or pushed further through your ear to have just the bottom out front. These are easy to wear and super comfortable. made of gold-fill. There are three shapes, top to bottom in photo: G-shape, V-shape and loop. The Gshape hangs down on the earlobe, the Vshape sits up at the ear - almost like a stick, and the loop can be worn either way with the piece hanging down the front or back.
