    Super! I love these hoops frames–I’m addicted to them. Always looking for new ideas, and I love the large crystal english cut in the center. Looks like a hunk of ice & perfect to ‘cool’ you off in the summer! :)

    I just bought these hoops but I have a silly question. Once you bend the top and bend it back, how do you put it in your ear? Thank you

    C McGonigle, I wondered the same thing when I first got them. The ear lobe is quite flexible, so just push the tip through holding it at the right angle & wiggle it until it comes out the back side. I found it tricky to get the tip back thru the hole on the wire on the backside once its on, but with practice, it’s a breeze now. Hope this helps. :)
