I purchased the Linked Hoops because, I loved the unique look of it and the fact that it is tarnish free. When I received my hoops in the mail it was nicely packaged and protected. It is made from very good materials. The Hoops have easily become my go to earring especially because the hoop size is not tiny but not big either. It is a very dainty elegant piece that everyone will love. I absolutely love the Linked Hoops I have gotten many compliments while wearing them.
