BEST JEWLRY EVER!! I absolutely love this brand and can't express how loyal I am to them. I'm a cheap jewelry buyer and saw the Ellie vail prices and didn't even think twice because they were 5x more expensive than my little gold hoops amazon packs. I finally asked for a chain necklace for my birthday over a year ago and haven't taken it off since. Since then I bought these hoops for a nice basic staple piece and they've been the best investment of my life. None of the pieces I've bought have tarnished and I wear them in the shower at least once a day and swimming, I never take them off! Being waterproof and sweat proof this jewelry is #1 I'd definitely invest if I were you!
