I love these glitter red, white, and blue dangles!! I wore them for Memorial Day this year. Also, when Sarah says the dangles should just slide out of your ear, if they get yanked, it is 100% the truth. My 14 month old niece just loved playing with aunties earrings and was pulling on them and they just slid right out. I didn’t know she had pulled the one out until I saw it in her hands. Personally, I wanted to test it out, so that’s why I left her pull on them. You definitely would not have gotten that with metal hooks!
