These earrings are really nice and a lot lighter in the ear than I was expecting them to be. I own the Ruah Vered earrings as well and I wear them at the same time (I have three holes in each lobe) with a smaller black stud in the upper hole. They look good in combination with other earrings and for me are a good size/length for my middle holes. They look equally good on their own too. The only issue I have is the chain snags on my wispy hairs, but that's a me problem and not a fault of the earrings.
