These earrings are gorgeous! They measure approximately 2.75 inches and are about a half inch wide. They're long enough that you can hear them when they're on, but not so long that they hit your shoulders. They're also hypoallergenic and made with surgical steel ear wires. Pictures do not do these earrings justice! Buy them and see for yourself! All orders are sent within 24-48 hours within ordering, sometimes sooner. All orders are shipped certified mail, with a tracking number, as long as the address is accepted by the USPS automated system. Any order NOT accepted by the automated system is sent the following day, except Sunday, so that a tracking number is available.
