Suprisingly great purchase
I love the look of cartilage piercings, but my ears never heal properly. I was weary about purchasing for a few reasons - fit, how it would look on my ear, comfortable wear, diameter/thickness, quality. I am very surprised at my feeling on each. It does sit lower on my mid-ear, which is more flattering than I thought it would be. The rose gold blends with my skintone, but the small crystals provide a very subtle pop. The metal-hoop-behind-crystal-loop thing isn't as bulky as it looks online -- it's dainty and feminine, which I'm glad about. Diameter and width are both well sized.
It's easy to put on -- just pull at the top of your ear and slide it on, then move to the mid-ear. I pinch it a little to make sure it's snug, but honestly it's a decent weight of metal so I'm not sure if that makes a difference. But it's never felt like or been in danger of falling off. Most importantly -- this is extremely comfortable -- it's actually more comfortable than my traditional lobe piercings (remember I said my ears don't heal properly?). I forget that it's on. I use Bose Running headphones for conference calls that fit in the hollowed out portion of my ear, and even with those in, I forget that the cuff is on.
I'm impressed on all accounts -- and will likely be purchasing more. I just hope long term quality is good (no missing stones/tarnishing), and that other cuffs from here fit as well!
