In my quest of trying to find earrings that don't bother my ears...I ordered the 6mm platinum balls from Blue Nile.

All in all I am very happy. They are comfortable thus far and I think they look decent. The best part, they sent me a coupon for $50...so the total for the earrings was only $90!! :smile:

They are very pretty, and platinum too! Was thinking of getting the beads too but wasn't sure how annoying they'd be for sleeping, so opted for a different design.

How are you finding them so far? And how did you decide on 6mm as opposed to 8 or 10mm?

You know, I chose 6mm because this was the only option they had in platinum. I have to say, I thought they would be too small...but upon seeing and wearing them, they seem perfect.

So far, very comfortable...I can't even tell I have them in...this makes me happy since it seems I have no reaction to the metal. I haven't slept in them yet.

Very nice!

Can you please tell me: How does the color of these platinum earrings compare to the color of Tiffany sterling silver? Would there be a noticeable color difference, or are these an ideal substitute for the Tiffany & Co. 8mm sterling silver Ball Studs, if one has allergies?

I don't own any Tiffany silver balls...but when I hold these up to my other Tiffany silver earrings they look the same. "Maybe" marginally a tad less bright...but I compulsively keep my silver polished....and you'd really have to concentrate on it to think that they didn't look the same (if that makes sense)
