    Hi guys, its my missus's birthday this friday so i thought i would do something different for her and with my jeweller friends help, i designed a pair of ear rings for her. She likes hoop ear rings but not so much they are chavvy but she also likes the security of a butterfly.

    The rings are made out of solid silver and they are about the size of a large mans thumb.

    I dont mind contructive criscism but some nice comments would equally and most hopefully be welcomed :thumbs:

    WHat do you lot reckon?

    I reckon they gotta be worth around the £100 mark(just for the silver let along my design:D) but i didnt ask my friend as he had helped a lot and i didnt want to embarrass him

    Abit steep for ear rings, but I dont really notice ear rings on women unless they are them huge round things.

    They look nice, but the question should be do they look nice on her?

    This will sound abit daft but can you see your gf in them?

    If yes - get them.
    If no - don't get them.
    If unsure - don't get them.

    You're thinking chav though, yes?

    If anyone read the post i did say i designed them hence i already have them its not a matter of buying them,

    I like Rosbifs Comment on the industrial side though as she is a bit gothicy.

    Kinda, but i generally don't like large hoops, little ones can look fine but i'm a studs man.

    silver price atm is about $11 an ounce ,so i doubt very much they are worth £100 just for the metal a pair of 1 ounce earrings worn for a month and your better half would have earlobes like an afrikaans tribal woman, main thing is that you designed them so tell her that.
