looking for earrings that could be dressed up or down, blingy but not too blingy for everyday wear.

which would you choose?

single shared prong hoops (1 ctw.):

like these a lot but i'm thinking the diamonds on the inside of the hoop will get blocked by the earlobes. 2 ctw. will probably show more stones but they're too big for me.

DBTY:

does anyone know what length the stock DBTY earrings are? i did a search on PS and read that they're customizable so i'd probably get 3 or 4 stones at at shorter length.

For everyday wear I would choose the hoops. The DBTY seem sort of elegant for everyday wear. They''d be great for nights out though.
(I''d like a pair of both!!!)

Both are beautiful but I would go for the hoops.
What a fun dilemma

I like them both, but I agree with PPs- for daily wear, the hoops!

thanks for your replies, everyone. do you think the DBTY earrings in a shorter length would make them more suitable for everyday wear?

I think so... Maybe only two or three links?

I have trouble answering your question, because I''m very minimalistic with my everyday earrings (studs or nada!).

I still like the hoops better than the DBTY even if they were shorter. I think the hoops are so classic and would be fantastic for every day wear! The perfect amount of ear bling

ok guys, thanks to your input, i''m leaning towards the hoops! so now the question is, 1 ctw. or 2 ctw.?

i really like the 1 ctw. because i think it''s a good size for my ears plus it''s more subtle than the 2 ctw. however, with the 1 ctw., the earlobe would hide a couple of the stones on the inside of the hoop. that makes me want to get the next size up so you can see more stones but i don''t know how "everyday" those hoops would be. what do you all think?

I''d stick with the 1 ct. myself, and not worry about it.

Hoops, but there is a design flaw. When the post goes in your ear, there is a tab of metal that hangs below on the front of your ear lobe. It shows from all angels. I brought this up to them ages ago when I wanted my own shared prong hoop earrings to be made. I even sent them a pair of daimond hoops for them to copy, no desgin copy issues. I just wanted ACA''s in my hoops. Still I got that tab, it''s not a good look. I never went public with this. But seeing that they are still doing it, kinda makes me upset. You don''t need that tab hanging down below the post. It serves no purpose and isn''t a good look....

If you can imagine draw a U shaped solid piece of metal that goes below the post, but it sits on the FRONT of your ear lobe.

I adore WF. But this needs to be corrected. IMHO at least.

When done right, such a great look.

wow, thanks for chiming in kaleigh! i didn''t notice that tab in the pics until i read your post...took another look at the pics and can see exactly what you''re talking about! i''ll definitely bring it up to WF''s attention when i inquire about the hoops because i wouldn''t want that tab there either.
